HDFS, or while Hadoop, is an open-source software framework that allows applications to process data in a distributed environment. The bottom line is that large data sets are divided into smaller blocks and spread over several computers so that they can be processed in parallel.

In this training, you will explore the concepts of analyzing large data sets. You discover how HDFS makes this process very efficient. Through this training, you will recognize the need to process huge data sets on a large scale.

This training examines how you can offer a Hadoop cluster in the cloud using the Dataproc service from the Google Cloud Platform. You will also explore apps for Hadoop, configure HDFS and learn about working with HDFS shells. You also learn how to copy files from your local file system to HDFS using a put command.


After following this training you will know how to work with HDFS. You have explored the concepts of analyzing large data sets and you have discovered how HDFS makes this process very efficient.


No specific knowledge is required for this training.
