Course Overview

Hadoop is the most important framework for working with Big Data in a distributed environment. Hadoop Administrators maintains and troubleshoot Hadoop clusters in production/development environments. By attending this training, trainees will learn about Hadoop cluster including planning, deployment, monitoring, performance tuning, security using Kerberos, HDFS high availability and Hcatalog/Hive administration. This course covers the fundamental concepts of Apache Hadoop and Apache Cluster.


Data has become an integral part of every organization, be it small or large; and maintaining it in a proper form has become difficult. Hadoop is a revolutionary open-source framework for software programming that took the data storage and processing to next level. Hadoop platform is used for structuring data and solves formatting problem for subsequent analytic purposes. Hadoop Administration is one of the specialization areas of Hadoop framework which helps in Hadoop Installation, Hadoop Security, Setting up Hadoop clusters and log files and designing, testing and building Hadoop environments.

Course Objective

After the completion of this course, Trainee will:

  • Understand how Hadoop solves the Big Data problems, about Hadoop cluster architecture, its core components and ecosystem
  • Have knowledge on different Hadoop components, understand working of HDFS, Hadoop cluster modes and configuration files
  • Be expertised in Hadoop 1.0 cluster setup and configuration, setting up Hadoop Clients using Hadoop 1.0 and resolve problems simulated from real-time environment.
  • Work on the secondary namenode, working with Hadoop distributed cluster, enabling rack awareness, maintenance mode of Hadoop cluster, adding or removing nodes to your cluster in adhoc.
  • Gain knowledge day to day cluster administration tasks, balancing data in cluster, protecting data by enabling trash, attempting a manual failover, creating backup within or across clusters, safeguarding your metadata and doing metadata recovery or manual failover of NameNode recovery.
  • Have capability to cluster, cluster sizing, hardware, network and software considerations, popular Hadoop distributions, workload and usage patterns, industry recommendations in Hadoop 2.0 environment.
