Overview of this book

The complex structure of data these days requires sophisticated solutions for data transformation, to make the information more accessible to the users.This book empowers you to build such solutions with relative ease with the help of Apache Hadoop, along with a host of other Big Data tools. This book will give you a complete understanding of the data lifecycle management with Hadoop, followed by modeling of structured and unstructured data in Hadoop. It will also show you how to design real-time streaming pipelines by leveraging tools such as Apache Spark, and build efficient enterprise search solutions using Elasticsearch. You will learn to build enterprise-grade analytics solutions on Hadoop, and how to visualize your data using tools such as Apache Superset. This book also covers techniques for deploying your Big Data solutions on the cloud Apache Ambari, as well as expert techniques for managing and administering your Hadoop cluster. By the end of this book, you will have all the knowledge you need to build expert Big Data systems.

Data access in the Cloud

The Cloud has become an important destination for storing both personal data and business data. Depending upon the importance and the secrecy requirements of the data, organizations have started using the Cloud to store their vital datasets.

The following diagram tries to summarize the various access patterns of typical enterprises and how they leverage the Cloud to store their data:

Cloud providers offer different varieties of storage. Let's take a look at what these types are:

  • Block storage
  • File-based storage
  • Encrypted storage
  • Offline storage

Block storage

This type of storage is primarily useful when we want to use this along with our compute servers, and want to manage the storage via the...
