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.

Practical data visualization in Hadoop

Hadoop has a rich ecosystem of data sources and applications that help us build rich visualizations. In the coming sections, we will understand two such applications:

  • Apache Druid
  • Apache Superset

We will also learn how to use Apache Superset with data in RDBMSes such as MySQL.

Apache Druid

Apache Druid is a distributed, high-performance columnar store. Its official website is

Druid allows us to store both real-time and historical data that is time series in nature. It also provides fast data aggregation and flexible data exploration. The architecture supports storing trillions of data points on petabyte sizes.

In order to understand more about the Druid architecture...
