Hadoop Real World Solutions Cookbook

Book Description

Realistic, simple examples to solve problems at scale with and related technologies

Overview

  • Solutions to common problems when working in the Hadoop environment.
  • Recipes for (un)loading data, , and troubleshooting.
  • In depth code examples demonstrating various analytic models, analytic solutions, and common best practices.

In Detail

Helping developers become more comfortable and proficient with solving problems in the Hadoop space. People will become more familiar with a wide variety of Hadoop related tools and best practices for implementation.

Hadoop Real World Solutions Cookbook will teach readers how to build solutions using tools such as Apache , Pig, MapReduce, Mahout, Giraph, HDFS, Accumulo, , and Ganglia.

Hadoop Real World Solutions Cookbook provides in depth explanations and code examples. Each chapter contains a set of recipes that pose, then solve, technical challenges, and can be completed in any order. A recipe breaks a single problem down into discrete steps that are easy to follow. The book covers (un)loading to and from HDFS, graph analytics with Giraph, batch data analysis using Hive, Pig, and MapReduce, machine learning approaches with Mahout, debugging and troubleshooting MapReduce, and columnar storage and retrieval of structured data using Apache Accumulo.

Hadoop Real World Solutions Cookbook will give readers the examples they need to apply Hadoop technology to their own problems.
