Overview

Apache Hadoop is the most popular framework for processing Big Data on clusters of servers. In this three (optionally, four) days course, attendees will learn about the business benefits and use cases for Hadoop and its ecosystem, how to plan cluster deployment and growth, how to install, maintain, monitor, troubleshoot and optimize Hadoop. They will also practice cluster bulk data load, get familiar with various Hadoop distributions, and practice installing and managing Hadoop ecosystem tools. The course finishes off with discussion of securing cluster with Kerberos.

“…The materials were very well prepared and covered thoroughly. The Lab was very helpful and well organized”
— Andrew Nguyen, Principal Integration DW Engineer, Microsoft Online Advertising
