Tez is the next generation Hadoop Query Processing framework written on top of YARN. Computation topologies in higher level languages like Pig/Hive can be naturally expressed in the new graph dataflow model exposed by Tez. Multi-stage queries can be expressed as a single Tez job resulting in lower latency for short queries and improved throughput for large scale queries. MapReduce has been the workhorse for Hadoop but its monolithic structure had made innovation slower. YARN separates resource management from application logic and thus enables the creation of Tez, a more flexible and generic new framework for data processing for the benefit of the entire Hadoop query ecosystem.
