Many corporations are finding that the size of their data sets are
outgrowing the capability of their systems to store and process
them. The data is becoming too big to manage and use with
traditional tools. The solution: implementing a big data system. As
Big Data Made Easy: A Working Guide to the Complete Hadoop Toolset
shows, Apache Hadoop offers a scalable, fault-tolerant system for
storing and processing data in parallel. It has a very rich toolset
that allows for storage (Hadoop), configuration (YARN and
ZooKeeper), collection (Nutch and Solr), processing (Storm, Pig,
and Map Reduce), scheduling (Oozie), moving (Sqoop and Avro),
monitoring (Chukwa, Ambari, and Hue), testing (Big Top), and
analysis (Hive). The problem is that the Internet offers IT pros
wading into big data many versions of the truth and some outright
falsehoods born of ignorance. What is needed is a book just like
this one: a wide-ranging but easily understood set of instructions
to explain where to get Hadoop tools, what they can do, how to
install them, how to configure them, how to integrate them, and how
to use them successfully. And you need an expert who has worked in
this area for a decade-someone just like author and big data expert
Mike Frampton. Big Data Made Easy approaches the problem of
managing massive data sets from a systems perspective, and it
explains the roles for each project (like architect and tester, for
example) and shows how the Hadoop toolset can be used at each
system stage. It explains, in an easily understood manner and
through numerous examples, how to use each tool. The book also
explains the sliding scale of tools available depending upon data
size and when and how to use them. Big Data Made Easy shows
developers and architects, as well as testers and project managers,
how to: Store big data Configure big data Process big data Schedule
processes Move data among SQL and NoSQL systems Monitor data
Perform big data analytics Report on big data processes and
projects Test big data systems Big Data Made Easy also explains the
best part, which is that this toolset is free. Anyone can download
it and-with the help of this book-start to use it within a day.
