Hadoop For Admins

Overview

Apache Hadoop is the most popular framework for processing Big Data on clusters of servers. In this 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.

What You Will Learn

  • Hadoop & Big Data
  • Installing Hadoop
  • Managing and Monitoring Hadoop
  • Loading data in HDFS
  • Managing eco system
  • Securing Hadoop

 

Audience

Hadoop administrators

Duration

three days/four days

Format

Lectures and hands-on labs, approximate balance 60% lectures, 40% labs.

Prerequisites

  • comfortable with basic Linux system administration
  • basic scripting skills

Knowledge of Hadoop and Distributed Computing is not required, but will be introduced and explained in the course.

Lab environment

Zero Install : There is no need to install hadoop software on students’ machines! A working hadoop cluster will be provided for students.

Students will need the following
