Hadoop's HDFS is a highly fault-tolerant distributed file system and, like Hadoop in general, designed to be deployed on low-cost hardware. It provides high throughput access to application data and is suitable for applications that have large data sets. This course examines the Hadoop ecosystem by demonstrating all of the commonly used open source software components. You'll explore a Big Data model to understand how these tools combine to create a supercomputing platform. You'll also learn how the principles of supercomputing apply to Hadoop and how this yields an affordable supercomputing environment. This learning path can be used as part of the preparation for the Cloudera Certified Administrator for Apache Hadoop (CCA-500) exam.

Target Audience
Technical personnel with a background in Linux, SQL, and programming who intend to join a Hadoop Engineering team in roles such as Hadoop developer, data architect, or data engineer or roles related to technical project management, cluster operations, or data analysis
