Introduction to Hadoop Administration

Apache Hadoop is an open source framework for creating reliable and distributable compute clusters. Hadoop provides an excellent platform (with other related frameworks) to process large unstructured or semi-structured data sets from multiple sources to dissect, classify, learn from and make suggestions for business analytics, decision support, and other advanced forms of machine intelligence.

Course Objectives

Working within in an engaging, hands-on learning environment, guided by our expert team, attendees will learn to:

  • Understand the benefits of distributed computing
  • Understand the Hadoop architecture (including HDFS and MapReduce)
  • Define administrator participation in Big Data projects
  • Plan, implement, and maintain Hadoop clusters
  • Deploy and maintain additional Big Data tools (Pig, Hive, Flume, etc.)
  • Plan, deploy and maintain HBase on a Hadoop cluster
  • Monitor and maintain hundreds of servers
  • Pinpoint performance bottlenecks and fix them

 

Course Prerequisites

This is an introductory-level course designed to teach experienced systems administrators how to install, maintain, monitor, troubleshoot, optimize, and secure Hadoop. Previous Hadoop experience is not required.
