I see that in Big data java is commonly used but C# I have not seen being used much. Why so?

thanks

Because you haven't looked in the right place? What make you think C# isn't used for Big Data?

The reason why C# isn't used much in Big Data is that Big Data is not that much of a Windows World. These days, most Enterprise servers are Linux machines. And though technically C# can be compiled and run on Linux, almost nobody trusts Microsoft enough to commit a major project to C#.

Many other languages can be used with confidence to produce Enterprise-grade products that can run on both Linux and Windows from the same source codebase. Languages like Java, Python, Go, C/C++ and even PHP. And quite a few apps get produced simply out of whatever language is fashionable this month. C# is no longer glamorous (not that Java is, either). Since C# doesn't offer any actual functional advantage over other languages for Big Data services, it's just very low down on the candidate list. Private open-source developers are rarely Windows fans, and corporations large enough to sponsor creation of their own Big Data apps are usually complex enough not to be pure Windows shops.
