Hadoop in Actionby Chuck Lam
Synopses & Reviews
Hadoop in Action teaches readers how to use Hadoop and write MapReduce programs. The intended readers are programmers, architects, and project managers who have to process large amounts of data offline. Hadoop in Action will lead the reader from obtaining a copy of Hadoop to setting it up in a cluster and writing data analytic programs.
The book begins by making the basic idea of Hadoop and MapReduce easier to grasp by applying the default Hadoop installation to a few easy-to-follow tasks, such as analyzing changes in word frequency across a body of documents. The book continues through the basic concepts of MapReduce applications developed using Hadoop, including a close look at framework components, use of Hadoop for a variety of data analysis tasks, and numerous examples of Hadoop in action.
Hadoop in Action will explain how to use Hadoop and present design patterns and practices of programming MapReduce. MapReduce is a complex idea both conceptually and in its implementation, and Hadoop users are challenged to learn all the knobs and levers for running Hadoop. This book takes you beyond the mechanics of running Hadoop, teaching you to write meaningful programs in a MapReduce framework.
This book assumes the reader will have a basic familiarity with Java, as most code examples will be written in Java. Familiarity with basic statistical concepts (e.g. histogram, correlation) will help the reader appreciate the more advanced data processing examples.
Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
Intended for programmers, architects, and project managers who have to process large amounts of data off-line, "Hadoop in Action" explains how to use Hadoop and presents design patterns and practices of programming MapReduce.
If your organization is looking for a storage solution to accommodate a virtually endless amount of data, this book will show you how Apache HBase can fulfill your needs. As the open source implementation of Google\'s BigTable architecture, HBase scales to billions of rows and millions of columns, while ensuring that write and read performance remain constant. HBase: The Definitive Guide provides the details you require, whether you simply want to evaluate this high-performance, non-relational database, or put it into practice right away.
HBase\'s adoption rate is beginning to climb, and several IT executives are asking pointed questions about this high-capacity database. This is the only book available to give you meaningful answers.
