Advanced Big Data Analytics, Architecture, Management and Applications (ANDMA)

Advanced Big Data Analytics, Architecture, Management, and Applications (ANDMA) is a 4-day Cisco IT training course designed to prepare data center architects in major architecture design features to cater to different needs of application, data center, or deployment requirements. This Cisco online training course will enable the student to choose and design scalable, reliable, and intelligent data center solutions using Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data and Analytics (formerly known as CPA for Big Data v4). The course will explain how the reference architectures are carefully designed, optimized, and tested with the leading big data software distributions to achieve a balance of performance and capacity to address specific application requirements. The Cisco Certified Architect course will cover big data architecture and Cisco end-to-end supported deployments. Lessons will include scaling to thousands of big data notes with Cisco ACI, business analytics with Splunk and CSA, Lambda architecture for Cisco Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data and Analytics, SQL on Hadoop, Data Life Cycle management, and end to end automation with Cisco UCS Director Express for Big Data. The student will leave with an understanding of the benefits for supported environments with Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data and Analytics.
