Hadoop Administrator Training
This four-day course provides the practical and theoretical knowledge necessary to operate a Hadoop cluster. We put great emphasis on practical hands-on exercises that aim to prepare participants to work as effective Hadoop administrators.
After the training, participants will be able to independently install and configure a secure and stable Hadoop cluster. They will understand the architecture, requirements and role of the individual components of core Hadoop. They will be also prepared to troubleshoot problems with Hadoop clusters and tune cluster performance.
