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.

Apache Ambari architecture

Apache Ambari follows a master/slave architecture where the master node instructs the slave nodes to perform certain actions and report back the state of every action. The master node is responsible for keeping track of the state of the infrastructure. In order to do this, the master node uses a database server, which can be configured during setup time.

In order to have a better understanding of how Ambari works, let's take a look at the high level architecture of Ambari, in the following diagram:

At the core, we have the following applications:

  • Ambari server
  • Ambari agent
  • Ambari web UI
  • Database

The Ambari server

The Ambari server (ambari-server) is a shell script which is the entry point...
