Some understanding of Hadoop is required to get the best out of this book.
With the almost unfathomable increase in web traffic over recent years, driven by millions of connected users, businesses are gaining access to massive amounts of complex, unstructured data from which to gain insight.
When Hadoop was introduced by Yahoo in 2007, it brought with it a paradigm shift in how this data was stored and analysed. Hadoop allowed small and medium sized companies to store huge amounts of data on cheap commodity servers in racks. The introduction of Big Data has allowed businesses to make decisions based on quantifiable analysis.
Hadoop is now implemented in major organizations such as Amazon, IBM, Cloudera, and Dell to name a few. This book introduces you to Hadoop and to concepts such as âMapReduceâ, âRack Awarenessâ, âYarnâ and âHDFS Federationâ, which will help you get acquainted with the technology.
Data in all domains is getting bigger. How can you work with it efficiently? Recently updated for Spark 1.3, this book introduces Apache Spark, the open source cluster computing system that makes data analytics fast to write and fast to run. With Spark, you can tackle big datasets quickly through simple APIs in Python, Java, and Scala. This edition includes new information on Spark SQL, Spark Streaming, setup, and Maven coordinates.
Written by the developers of Spark, this book will have data scientists and engineers up and running in no time. Youâll learn how to express parallel jobs with just a few lines of code, and cover applications from simple batch jobs to stream processing and machine learning.
Apache Hadoop is the technology at the heart of the Big Data revolution, and Hadoop skills are in enormous demand. Now, in just 24 lessons of one hour or less, you can learn all the skills and techniques you'll need to deploy each key component of a Hadoop platform in your local environment or in the cloud, building a fully functional Hadoop cluster and using it with real programs and datasets. Each short, easy lesson builds on all that's come before, helping you master all of Hadoop's essentials, and extend it to meet your unique challenges. Apache Hadoop in 24 Hours, Sams Teach Yourself covers all this, and much more:
Step-by-step instructions walk you through common questions, issues, and tasks; Q-and-As, Quizzes, and Exercises build and test your knowledge; "Did You Know?" tips offer insider advice and shortcuts; and "Watch Out!" alerts help you avoid pitfalls. By the time you're finished, you'll be comfortable using Apache Hadoop to solve a wide spectrum of Big Data problems.
Hadoop enables the distributed storage and processing of large datasets across clusters of computers. Learning how to administer Hadoop is crucial to exploit its unique features. With this book, you will be able to overcome common problems encountered in Hadoop administration.
The book begins with laying the foundation by showing you the steps needed to set up a Hadoop cluster and its various nodes. You will get a better understanding of how to maintain Hadoop cluster, especially on the HDFS layer and using YARN and MapReduce. Further on, you will explore durability and high availability of a Hadoop cluster.
Youâll get a better understanding of the schedulers in Hadoop and how to configure and use them for your tasks. You will also get hands-on experience with the backup and recovery options and the performance tuning aspects of Hadoop. Finally, you will get a better understanding of troubleshooting, diagnostics, and best practices in Hadoop administration.
By the end of this book, you will have a proper understanding of working with Hadoop clusters and will also be able to secure, encrypt it, and configure auditing for your Hadoop clusters.

Do we all define Hortonworks in the same way? What are our Hortonworks Processes? Will team members perform Hortonworks work when assigned and in a timely fashion? What are the expected benefits of Hortonworks to the business? Can we add value to the current Hortonworks decision-making process (largely qualitative) by incorporating uncertainty modeling (more quantitative)?
Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a challenge or meet an objective is the most valuable role... In EVERY group, company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'
This Self-Assessment empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Hortonworks investments work better.
