Hadoop is an open-source software framework for storing and processing big data in a distributed fashion on large clusters of commodity hardware. Essentially, it accomplishes two tasks: massive data storage and faster processing. This course explains the theory of Sqoop as a tool for dealing with extraction and loading of structured data from a RDBMS. You'll explore an explanation of Hive SQL statements and a demonstration of Hive in action. 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
