What is Hadoop Admin Training about?

Gain in-depth knowledge of the base Apache Hadoop Framework and how it is used to process complex data sets faster and more efficiently with our Hadoop Administration Training. With easy to follow step-by-step instructions, learn how to plan and deploy Hadoop clusters.

Equip your team with the skills needed to take control of your organization’s Hadoop cluster with the use of the HDFS and MapReduce configuration parameters. Aligned to the official Hadoop Administration certification, this training program also teaches  the latest industry best practices for monitoring clusters, scheduling jobs, various failure scenarios and data recovery.

Through our  Hadoop Admin Online Training,  gain hands-on experience of creating a 4 node cluster set up with Amazon EC2 and then running MapReduce jobs on it.

What are the objectives of Hadoop Admin Training ?

At the end of this Hadoop Admin course, you will be able to:

  • Explain the architecture of Hadoop and the interplay of various components while processing huge data sets

  • Interpret the design philosophy of HDFS file storage, failure and recovery scenarios

  • Plan a Hadoop cluster & HDFS block replication

  • Describe different Hadoop deployment types

  • Install & manage Hadoop deployments

  • Access and manipulate data through HDFS commands

  • Work with MapReduce and know the component failures and recoveries scenarios

  • Implement Checkpoint procedure, safe mode, potential problems

  • Apply stack and log traces for monitoring a Hadoop cluster

  • Schedule Hadoop jobs on the same cluster

  • Develop a 4 node cluster using Amazon EC2, and run MapReduce jobs on the cluster
