Start the year off with bigger questions by taking advantage of Cloudera University’s special offer for aspiring Hadoop administrators. All participants who complete a Cloudera Administrator Training for Apache Hadoop public course by the end of March 2013 will receive a free digital copy of Hadoop Operations by Eric Sammer. If you’ve been asked to maintain large and complex Hadoop clusters, this book is a must. In addition to providing practical guidance from an expert, Hadoop Operations is also a terrific companion reference to the full Cloudera Administrator course.
Cloudera’s three-day course provides administrators a comprehensive understanding of all the steps necessary to operate and manage Hadoop clusters. From installation and configuration through load balancing and tuning your cluster, Cloudera’s administration course has you covered. This course is appropriate for system administrators and others who will be setting up or maintaining a Hadoop cluster. Basic Linux experience is a prerequisite, but prior knowledge of Hadoop is not required.
Upon completion of the course, attendees also receive a voucher for a Cloudera Certified Administrator for Apache Hadoop (CCAH) exam. Certification is a great differentiator; it helps establish individuals as leaders in their field, providing customers with tangible evidence of skills and expertise.
