Which Data Structure is used in case of Map Reduce

I am working on Hadoop from last 5 months but I am wondering that which data structure Hadoop uses to store large datasets. Where can I find a detailed view of underlying data structures in Hadoop? or Can anyone explain me here?

Thanks in advance!

In case of Hadoop, HDFS is used as a storage platform and The underlying HDFS uses block as a storing units. HDFS does not care about what structure the files have. A MapReduce program simply gets the file data from HDFS as an input.

You can refer the below book to get a complete detailed information:

Hope this will help you!
