This book is useful for Hadoop administrators who need to learn how to monitor and diagnose their clusters. Also, the book will prove useful for new users of the technology, as the language used is simple and easy to grasp.
You’ve heard the hype about Hadoop: it runs petabyte–scale data mining tasks insanely fast, it runs gigantic tasks on clouds for absurdly cheap, it’s been heavily committed to by tech giants like IBM, Yahoo!, and the Apache Project, and it’s completely open-source (thus free). But what exactly is it, and more importantly, how do you even get a Hadoop cluster up and running? From Apress, the name you’ve come to trust for hands–on technical knowledge, Pro Hadoop brings you up to speed on Hadoop. You learn the ins and outs of MapReduce; how to structure a cluster, design, and implement the Hadoop file system; and how to build your first cloud–computing tasks using Hadoop. Learn how to let Hadoop take care of distributing and parallelizing your software—you just focus on the code, Hadoop takes care of the rest. Best of all, you’ll learn from a tech professional who’s been in the Hadoop scene since day one. Written from the perspective of a principal engineer with down–in–the–trenches knowledge of what to do wrong with Hadoop, you learn how to avoid the common, expensive first errors that everyone makes with creating their own Hadoop system or inheriting someone else’s. Skip the novice stage and the expensive, hard–to–fix mistakes...go straight to seasoned pro on the hottest cloud–computing framework with Pro Hadoop. Your productivity will blow your managers away. What you’ll learn Set up a stand–alone Hadoop cluster the smart way, laid out simply and step by step so you can get up and running quickly to build your next data center, collaborative, data–intensive Internet services application, Software as a Service (SaaS), and more. Optimize your Hadoop production tasks like an experienced pro. Work with time–proven, bulletproof standard patterns that have been tested and debugged in high–volume production. Understand just enough theoretical knowledge to know why something works in Hadoop, without getting bogged down in abstruse walls of theory. Get detailed explanations of not only how to do something with Hadoop, but also why, from a front–line coder with years in the Hadoop game. Turn someone else’s expensive cluster–wide “wrong” into an orderly, productive "right" with professional–level debugging and testing. Who this book is for IT professionals interested in investigating Hadoop and implementing it in their organizations, and existing Hadoop users who want to deepen their professional toolkits.

Until recently, Hadoop deployments existed on hardware owned and run by organizations. Now, of course, you can acquire the computing resources and network connectivity to run Hadoop clusters in the cloud. But there’s a lot more to deploying Hadoop to the public cloud than simply renting machines. This hands-on guide shows developers and systems administrators familiar with Hadoop how to install, use, and manage cloud-born clusters efficiently. You’ll learn how to architect clusters that work with cloud-provider features—not just to avoid pitfalls, but also to take full advantage of these services. You’ll also compare the Amazon, Google, and Microsoft clouds, and learn how to set up clusters in each of them. Learn how Hadoop clusters run in the cloud, the problems they can help you solve, and their potential drawbacks Examine the common concepts of cloud providers, including compute capabilities, networking and security, and storage Build a functional Hadoop cluster on cloud infrastructure, and learn what the major providers require Explore use cases for high availability, relational data with Hive, and complex analytics with Spark Get patterns and practices for running cloud clusters, from designing for price and security to dealing with maintenance
For system administrators tasked with the job of maintaining large and complex Hadoop clusters, this book explains the particulars of Hadoop operations, from planning, installing, and configuring the system to providing ongoing maintenance.
Die escape GmbH betreibt ein MySQL basiertes Dataware-House in das Daten aus verschiedenen Webpräsenzen fließen, um dort ausgewertet zu werden. Nach Jahren des erfolgreichen Betriebs nimmt mit der ständig steigenden Menge an gespeicherten Daten die Leistung des Systems allerdings ab. Die Laufzeiten für Auswertungen steigen und die Agilität sinkt. Kleine Optimierungen und Veränderungen des Systems können das Unbrauchbarwerden hinauszögern, als aber aus Gründen der Leistung auf einen Teil der Abfragen verzichtet werden muss, wird schließlich klar, dass nur eine grundlegende Veränderung des Systems den langfristigen Betrieb sicherstellen kann. Aus diesem Grund wurde nach Technologien gesucht, deren Fähigkeiten die Leistung des bestehenden Dataware-Houses verbessern können. Dies führte zu Hadoop.

“This book is a critically needed resource for the newly released Apache Hadoop 2.0, highlighting YARN as the significant breakthrough that broadens Hadoop beyond the MapReduce paradigm.” —From the Foreword by Raymie Stata, CEO of Altiscale The Insider’s Guide to Building Distributed, Big Data Applications with Apache Hadoop™ YARN Apache Hadoop is helping drive the Big Data revolution. Now, its data processing has been completely overhauled: Apache Hadoop YARN provides resource management at data center scale and easier ways to create distributed applications that process petabytes of data. And now in Apache Hadoop™ YARN, two Hadoop technical leaders show you how to develop new applications and adapt existing code to fully leverage these revolutionary advances. YARN project founder Arun Murthy and project lead Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli demonstrate how YARN increases scalability and cluster utilization, enables new programming models and services, and opens new options beyond Java and batch processing. They walk you through the entire YARN project lifecycle, from installation through deployment. You’ll find many examples drawn from the authors’ cutting-edge experience—first as Hadoop’s earliest developers and implementers at Yahoo! and now as Hortonworks developers moving the platform forward and helping customers succeed with it. Coverage includes YARN’s goals, design, architecture, and components—how it expands the Apache Hadoop ecosystem Exploring YARN on a single node Administering YARN clusters and Capacity Scheduler Running existing MapReduce applications Developing a large-scale clustered YARN application Discovering new open source frameworks that run under YARN
