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 security

Data has become a very important asset for businesses when making very critical decisions. As the complexity of the infrastructure that generates and uses this data, its very important to have some control over the access patterns of this data. In the Hadoop ecosystem, we have Apache Ranger, which is another open source project that helps in managing the security of big data.

What is Apache Ranger?

Apache Ranger is an application that enables data architects to implement security policies on a big data ecosystem. The goal of this project is to provide a unified way for all Hadoop applications to adhere to the security guidelines that are defined.

Here are some of the features of Apache Ranger:

  • Centralized administration...
