This course covers the essentials of deploying and managing an Apache™ Hadoop® cluster. The course is lab intensive with each participant creating their own Hadoop cluster using either the CDH (Cloudera's Distribution, including Apache Hadoop) or Hortonworks Data Platform stacks. Core Hadoop services are explored in depth with emphasis on troubleshooting and recovering from common cluster failures. The fundamentals of related services such as Ambari, Zookeeper, Pig, Hive, HBase, Sqoop, Flume, and Oozie are also covered. The course is approximately 60% lecture and 40% labs.

Supported Distributions:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7
