The amount of data generated by enterprises every day is mind boggling. Roughly, 2.5 exabytes (2.5 x 10^8) of data are created every day. With so much amount of data, the obvious questions that would arise will be about- the storage, transfer and analyzation of data. Big Data refers to the data sets so large that the traditional methods seem deficient to handle it, there is a growing demand for individuals with Big Data skills in the industry.


Hadoop is an open source framework designed to store and process Big data. Hadoop is designed to be scalable, from single to thousands of machines. You will learn about the components involved in the Hadoop ecosystem and the execution environment. By the end of this course, you will be comfortable with the techniques involved in data analysis and the technical jargon of Big data analytics.
