Deploy multi-node Hadoop clusters to harness the Cloud for storage and large-scale data processing

About This Video

  • Familiarize yourself with Hadoop and its services, and how to configure them

  • Deploy compute instances and set up a three-node Hadoop cluster on Amazon

  • Set up a Linux installation optimized for Hadoop

In Detail

Hadoop is an Apache top-level project that allows the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It allows you to deliver a highly available service on top of a cluster of computers, each of which may be prone to failures. While Big Data and Hadoop have seen a massive surge in popularity over the last few years, many companies still struggle with trying to set up their own computing clusters.

This video series will turn you from a faltering first-timer into a Hadoop pro through clear, concise descriptions that are easy to follow.

We'll begin this course with an overview of Amazon's cloud service and its use. We'll then deploy Linux compute instances and you'll see how to connect your client machine to Linux hosts and configure your systems to run Hadoop. Finally, you'll install Hadoop, download data, and examine how to run a query.

This video series will go beyond just Hadoop; it will cover everything you need to get your own clusters up and running. You will learn how to make network configuration changes as well as modify Linux services. After you've installed Hadoop, we'll then go over installing HUE—Hadoop's UI. Using HUE, you will learn how to download data to your Hadoop clusters, move it to HDFS, and finally query that data with Hive.

Learn everything you need to deploy Hadoop clusters to the Cloud through these videos. You'll grasp all you need to know about handling large data sets over multiple nodes.

    Comments about oreilly Building Hadoop Clusters:

    While reviewing building hadoop cluster video series from packt pub, i really find it very impressive and easy way to learn building hadoop cluster on amazon ec2 step by steps. It talks about all the aspects of building a startup cluster with 3 nodes and very good guidance about hadoop 2 & security. Overall, i am satisfied with the video series and i defenately recommend this. Cons would be it's not too much detail which i expect but one can always have a complete ebook and go through it to gain more and more of insight.
