Designing Real World Big Data Applications
Publisher: O’Reilly Media /Release Date: July 2014
With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form — the author’s raw and unedited content as he or she writes — so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You’ll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they’re written, and the final ebook bundle.
Get expert guidance on architecting end-to-end data management solutions with Apache Hadoop. While many sources explain how to use various components in the Hadoop ecosystem, this practical book takes you through architectural considerations necessary to tie those components together into a complete tailored application, based on your particular use case.
To reinforce those lessons, the book’s second section provides detailed examples of architecture used in some of the most commonly found Hadoop applications. Whether you’re designing and implementing a new Hadoop application, or planning to integrate Hadoop into your existing data infrastructure, Hadoop Application Architectures will skillfully guide you through the process.
The Early Release edition begins with chapters that concentrate on design considerations for Data Modeling and Data Movement in Hadoop:
Explore whether your application should store data on Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) or HBase
Get best practices for designing an HDFS or HBase schema
Learn how to design schemas for SQL-on-Hadoop (e.g. Hive, Impala, HCatalog) tables
