Moving beyond MapReduce and Batch Processing with Apache Hadoop 2
Apache Hadoop is helping drive the Big Data revolution. Now, its data processing has been completely overhauled: Apache Hadoop YARN provides resource management at data center scale and easier ways to create distributed applications that process petabytes of data. And now in Apache Hadoop YARN, two Hadoop more » technical leaders show you how to develop new applications and adapt existing code to fully leverage these revolutionary advances. YARN project founder Arun Murthy and project lead Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli demonstrate how YARN increases scalability and cluster utilization, enables new programming models and services, and opens new options beyond Java and batch processing. They walk you through the entire YARN project lifecycle, from installation through deployment. « less

Simplify Hadoop programming to create complex end-to-end Enterprise Big Data solutions with Pig
Pig Design Patterns is a comprehensive guide that will enable readers to readily use design patterns that simplify the creation of complex data pipelines in various stages of data management. This book focuses on using Pig in an enterprise context, bridging the gap between theoretical understanding and more » practical implementation. Each chapter contains a set of design patterns that pose and then solve technical challenges that are relevant to the enterprise use cases. The book covers the journey of Big Data from the time it enters the enterprise to its eventual use in analytics, in the form of a report or a predictive model. By the end of the book, readers will appreciate Pig's real power in addressing each and every problem encountered when creating an analytics-based data product. Each design pattern comes with a suggested solution, analyzing the trade-offs of implementing the solution in a different way, explaining how the code works, and the results. « less

Pro Apache Hadoop, Second Edition brings you up to speed on Hadoop - the framework of big data. Revised to cover Hadoop 2.0, the book covers the very latest developments such as YARN (aka MapReduce 2.0), new HDFS high-availability features, and increased scalability in the form of HDFS Federations. All more » the old content has been revised too, giving the latest on the ins and outs of MapReduce, cluster design, the Hadoop Distributed File System, and more. This book covers everything you need to build your first Hadoop cluster and begin analyzing and deriving value from your business and scientific data. Learn to solve big-data problems the MapReduce way, by breaking a big problem into chunks and creating small-scale solutions that can be flung across thousands upon thousands of nodes to analyze large data volumes in a short amount of wall-clock time. Learn how to let Hadoop take care of distributing and parallelizing your software - you just focus on the code; Hadoop takes care of the rest. « less

Integrate data between Apache Hadoop and SQL Server 2012 and provide business intelligence on the heterogeneous data
With the explosion of data, the open source Apache Hadoop ecosystem is gaining traction, thanks to its huge ecosystem that has arisen around the core functionalities of its distributed file system (HDFS) and Map Reduce. As of today, being able to have SQL Server talking to Hadoop has become increasingly more » important because the two are indeed complementary. While petabytes of unstructured data can be stored in Hadoop taking hours to be queried, terabytes of structured data can be stored in SQL Server 2012 and queried in seconds. This leads to the need to transfer and integrate data between Hadoop and SQL Server. « less
