Hados stores files in a cluster of servers. Its goal is to handle high availability by storing copies of the same file on several nodes. It provides RESTFUL APIs to easily store, check, or retrieve files. Using the cluster APIs, you can retrieve files from whichever node hosts them. To avoid any single point of failure, it is possible to apply a request to any node of the cluster; there is no master node.
Executor is a small but perfectly functional Java (1.5 or higher) JAR executable that is used to run programs in shared computer resources like a pool of computers that you and your friends own. Moreover, it can be used as a simple file sharing program: you can access the files of your home computer from your office computer. Executor uses a shared or synchronized file system. The user creates a task in one computer (just by uploading a file), and another computer that has the required program will execute the task.
