When examining Hadoop availability it's important not to focus solely on the NameNode. There is a tendency since that is the single point of failure for HDFS, and many components in the ecosystem rely on HDFS, but Hadoop availability is a more general larger issue. In this course we are going to examine the availability and how to recover from failures for the NameNode, DataNode, HDFS, and YARN. This learning path can be used as part of the preparation for the Cloudera Certified Administrator for Apache Hadoop (CCA-500) exam.
