Big Data Hadoop Development

Hadoop is an open source, the Java-based programming framework that enables the storage and processing of extremely large data sets in a distributed computing environment. It is part of the Apache project sponsored by the Apache Software. Big Data Hadoop Training, makes it possible to run applications on systems with thousands of hardware nodes, and thousands of terabytes of data. It is a  distributed file system that facilitates rapid data transfer rates among nodes and allows the system to continue operating in case of a node failure. This approach lowers the risk of catastrophic system failure and unexpected data loss

Apache HBase

HBase is an open-source, non-relational, distributed database modeled after Google’s Bigtable and is written in Java. It provides a fault-tolerant way of storing large quantities of sparse data. HBase features compression, in-memory operation, and Bloom filters on a per-column basis as outlined in the original Bigtable paper. Tables in HBase can serve as the input and output for MapReduce jobs run in Hadoop and may be accessed through the Java API but also through REST, Avro or Thrift gateway APIs. HBase is a column-oriented key-value data store and has been idolized widely because of its lineage with Hadoop and HDFS. HBase runs on top of HDFS and is well-suited for faster read and write operations on large datasets with high throughput and low input/output latency.

Apache Hive

Apache Hive is a data warehouse software built on top of Apache Hadoop for providing data summarization query, and analysis. Hive gives a SQL-like interface to query data stored in various databases and file systems that integrate with Hadoop. Traditional SQL queries must be implemented in the MapReduce Java API to execute SQL applications and queries over distributed data. Hive provides the necessary SQL abstraction to integrate SQL-like queries (HiveQL) into the underlying Java without the need to implement queries in the low-level Java API. Since most data warehousing applications work with SQL-based querying languages, Hive aids portability of SQL-based applications to Hadoop. Amazon maintains a software fork of Apache Hive included in Amazon Elastic MapReduce on Amazon Web Services.

Apache Storm is a distributed stream processing computation framework written predominantly in the Clojure programming language. It uses custom created “spouts” and “bolts” to define information sources and manipulations to allow batch, distributed processing of streaming data. A Storm application is designed as a “topology” in the shape of a directed acyclic graph (DAG) with spouts and bolts acting as the graph vertices. Edges on the graph are named streams and direct data from one node to another. Together, the topology acts as a data transformation pipeline.
