    I'd say that for a new cluster, it is a no brainer to start with MR2 unless you have legacy applications that depend on MR1. MR2 architecture is quite different now allowing more flexibility and better cluster resource management.

    Most importantly, there are some cool frameworks being developed for MR2 that would allow things like faster job execution that you would miss if you start with MR1

    Hadoop 2 Apache separated the management of the map and reduce process from the cluster's resource management; you now have a YARN=yet another resource manager. This separation allows a better versatility - it can support the MR and also support additional paradigms (Tez, Storm, etc).

    MR2 has been observed to be more efficient when compared to MR1. Hortonworks has documented this well at:
