Apache Hadoop is an OpenSource framework for creating reliable and distributable compute clusters. Credited with the IBM Watson Jeopardy win in 2011, Hadoop can be used (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.
This class is geared for the administrator who is charged with maintaining a Hadoop cluster and its related components. Hadoop is a system designed for massive scalability and is extremely fault-tolerant compared to other cluster architectures. As administrators, we need to install, configure, and maintain Hadoop on Linux in various compute environments.
There is a small amount of overlap with the developer course in the beginning overview sections. There is a single exercise that has the administrators create and test-run a MapReduce program as a developer or user would. All of the remaining exercises are geared towards installation and configuration issues.
This course is focused on the Hadoop 2.0 (pre-)release.
