Big Data Analytics with Hadoop 3

By: Sridhar Alla

Overview of this book

Apache Hadoop is the most popular platform for big data processing, and can be combined with a host of other big data tools to build powerful analytics solutions. Big Data Analytics with Hadoop 3 shows you how to do just that, by providing insights into the software as well as its benefits with the help of practical examples. Once you have taken a tour of Hadoop 3’s latest features, you will get an overview of HDFS, MapReduce, and YARN, and how they enable faster, more efficient big data processing. You will then move on to learning how to integrate Hadoop with the open source tools, such as Python and R, to analyze and visualize data and perform statistical computing on big data. As you get acquainted with all this, you will explore how to use Hadoop 3 with Apache Spark and Apache Flink for real-time data analytics and stream processing. In addition to this, you will understand how to use Hadoop to build analytics solutions on the cloud and an end-to-end pipeline to perform big data analysis using practical use cases. By the end of this book, you will be well-versed with the analytical capabilities of the Hadoop ecosystem. You will be able to build powerful solutions to perform big data analytics and get insight effortlessly.

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides secure, resizable computing capacity on a Cloud. It is designed to make web-scale Cloud computing easier for developers.

Amazon EC2's simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with ease. It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and let's you use Amazon's computing environment. Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity (both up and down), as your computing requirements change. Amazon EC2 allows you to save computing costs as you pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers with the tools to build failure-resilient applications and to isolate them from common failure scenarios.

Elastic web-scale computing

Amazon EC2 enables you to increase or decrease capacity within a span of minutes. You can commission one or several server...
