Course Description

Introduction to Hadoop Administration Training is designed to help professionals develop a conceptual understanding of all the important steps to maintain and operate a Hadoop cluster.

This technical course educates about the Big Data landscape and provides comprehensive information about the system administration working aspect of running Hadoop.

Throughout the program, students get to learn about the most challenging situations that Hadoop administrators face in the real world.

It also familiarizes them with the latest updates and details of the platform.

This course is suitable for Administrators who are responsible for managing the Hadoop cluster and other related elements in Linux environments.

In this course, trainees will learn the leading methodologies to test Hadoop programs and tune and optimize the Hadoop performance.

It also teaches them to install Hadoop for HBase and helps in explore Mahout, MLib, and other frameworks.
