  2. I/O operation :- It also know as velocity issue. When we write some data into Hard Disk it took some considerable time similarly When we read data from hard disk it took time too. Now as we know A huge amount of data is generating everyday. Writing data into hard disk and reading it back consume some time and today’s world all about the speed.

To solve Both of the above issue a concept was introduce call “Distributed storage” and hadoop is one the product or software based in Distributed storage.
