YARN and MapReduce 2

New Contributor

I've been reading Hadoop: The Definitive Guide. In Chapter 6 the author describes MapReduce 2. He uses YARN and MapReduce 2 interchangeably. However, in the YARN webinar the speaker emphasized that YARN is not MapReduce 2. Can you please explain the difference.
