Apache Hadoop Training at PuppetConf

Puppet Labs and Cloudera have partnered to colocate an Apache Hadoop Sysadmin training at PuppetConf. The Hadoop sysadmin course at PuppetConf will be one of the first 3-day Hadoop training courses offered, and registration in the training course includes a free ticket to PuppetConf. The Hadoop Sysadmin course is being offered in addition to a Puppet Master, Puppet Developer, MCollective, and Eucalyptus Quickstart.

About the Course:

Systems administrators need to know how Hadoop operates in order to deploy and manage Hadoop clusters for their organizations. Cloudera offers a two-day intensive Hadoop training course on Hadoop for operations staff. The Hadoop training course describes Hadoop’s architecture, covers the management and monitoring tools most commonly used to oversee it, and provides valuable advice on setting up, maintaining and troubleshooting Hadoop for development and production systems. This course includes the certification exam to become Cloudera Certified Hadoop Administrator. You will learn
  • How the Hadoop Distributed File System and MapReduce work
  • What hardware configurations are optimal for Hadoop clusters
  • What network considerations to take into account when building out your cluster
  • How to configure Hadoop's options for best cluster performance
  • How to configure the FairScheduler to provide service-level agreements for multiple users of a cluster
  • How to maintain and monitor your cluster
  • How to load data into the cluster from dynamically-generated files using Flume, and from relational database management systems using Sqoop
  • What system administration issues exist with other Hadoop projects such as Hive, Pig, and HBase
