Hadoop Administration FAQs

Hadoop Administration

A Hadoop administrator administers and manages the set of Hadoop clusters. A Hadoop administrator’s responsibilities include setting up Hadoop clusters, backup, recovery and maintenance of the clusters. Good knowledge of Hadoop architecture is required to become a Hadoop administrator. Some of the key responsibilities of a Hadoop Administrator are: 

  • Takes care of the day-to-day running of Hadoop Clusters. 
  • Makes sure that Hadoop cluster is running all the time. 
  • Responsible for managing and reviewing Hadoop log files. 
  • Responsible for capacity planning and estimating the requirements. 
  • Implementation of ongoing Hadoop infrastructure. 
  • Cluster maintenance along with the creation and removal of nodes. 
  • Keeping an eye on Hadoop cluster security and connectivity. 
  • Tuning the performance of Hadoop clusters. 
  • Managing and reviewing the log files of Hadoop. 

Hadoop mainly consists of three layers:  

  • HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System): the place where all the data is stored,  
  • Application layer (on which the MapReduce engine sits): to process the stored data, and 
  • YARN: which allocates the resources to various slaves. All of these are operating on Master and Slave nodes. 

Hadoop is an open-source framework written in Java that enables the distributed processing of large datasets. Hadoop is not a programming language. 

Hadoop developers are needed to develop or program applications whereas administrators are required to run those applications. Let’s see how Hadoop developer and administrator differ from each other in terms of roles and responsibilities:  

A few responsibilities of Hadoop Administrator: 

  • Installing Hadoop in a Linux environment
  • Runningand maintaininga Hadoop cluster 
  • Ensuringthat a Hadoop cluster is running all the time 
  • Creation and removal of a new node in a cluster environment
  • Implementingand administeringHadoop infrastructure continuously 

A few responsibilities of Hadoop developer: 

  • To load data using ETL tools from various platforms into the Hadoop platform
  • Deciding a file format that would be most effective for a task
  • Cleaning data using user-defined functions or streaming API based on the requirements
  • Definingthe job flow in Hadoop 
  • Maintaining, scheduling, and managinglog files.

Following is a list of different components of the Hadoop ecosystem: 

  • HDFS 
  • MapReduce 
  • YARN 
  • Hive 
  • Apache Pig 
  • Apache HBase 

Hadoop can store and process many unstructured datasets that are distributed across various clusters using simple program models. It breaks up unstructured data and distributes it into several parts for side by side data analysis. Rather than relying on one computer, the library is designed for detecting and handling failures of the application layer, thereby delivering a high-quality service on top of a cluster of computers. On top of these, Hadoop is an open-source framework available to everyone. 

Hadoop is a framework that is mainly written in the Java programming language, with some native code in C and command-line utilities written as shell scripts. Since MapReduce Java code is common any programming can be used with Hadoop. 

The best language to use for Hadoop is a matter of personal choice. Python helps when doing quick and simple programs. While the number of functions can be reduced using other languages like Python and Scala, there are some advanced features of Hadoop that are only available via Java API. Often, the programmer would be required to dig deep into the coding and figure out what is wrong, and Java especially helps in doing that. Scala language can be used because Hadoop is built on the same ecosystem. 

If Big Data is the problem, Hadoop can be said to be the solution. The Hadoop framework can be used for storing and processing big data that is present in large clusters in an organized manner. Hadoop segregates the big data into small parts and stores them separately on different servers present in a particular network. It is highly efficient and can handle large volumes of data. So, with knowledge of Hadoop, you can work on Big Data quickly and efficiently. 

Hadoop plays a tremendous role in the Big Data industry. It is easy to use, scalable and cost-effective. Hadoop provides massive storage solutions for any kind of data and can handle virtually limitless concurrent tasks or jobs. 

Hadoop is not a database; it is a software ecosystem that allows parallel computing on a vast scale. Hadoop enables specific types of NoSQL distributed databases (e.g. HBase) to spread the data across thousands of servers without affecting the quality.  

Yes, Hadoop is an Open-Source software framework that allows storing and processing the massive amount of data.  

Use of Big Data Hadoop

Hadoop is the most favoured and in-demand Big Data tool worldwide. It is popular due to the following attributes: 

  • Power of Computing-  

The distributed computing model in Hadoop processes big data very fast. The power of computing will be more if the number of nodes you use is more. 

  • Massive data storing and processing- 

This tool lets organizations store and process massive amounts of any type of data quickly. 

  • Zero Fault tolerance rate- 

HDFS is highly fault tolerant and handles faults by the process of replica creation. In case a node goes down, the tasks are redirected to other nodes to ensure that the distributed computing doesn’t fail, and fault tolerance rate will be zero. 

  • Cheapest Price- 

It is an open-source framework that uses commodity hardware to store and process large amounts of data.  

  • More Flexibility- 

Hadoop allows data processing before storing it, unlike in a traditional relational database.   

  • Scalability-  

You can extend your system easily if you are required to handle more data by adding nodes with the help of the administration.    

Following are the benefits of Hadoop technology: 

  • Hadoop is a storage platform which can store and distribute very large sets of data across hundreds of servers 
  • Hadoop is a cost-effective tool as it can store huge data sets for businesses 
  • Hadoop allows businesses to access new data sources easily  
  • Hadoop can process terabytes of data in just minutes and petabytes of data in hours 
  • The major benefit of using Hadoop is that it is resilient to failure due to its zero-fault tolerance rate    

The following are the top five organizations that are using Hadoop: 

  • Marks and Spencer 
  • Royal Bank of Scotland 
  • Expedia 
  • British Airways 
  • Royal Mail 

Hadoop is a crucial tool in Data Science, and Data Scientists who have knowledge of Hadoop are highly sought after. Given below are the reasons why Data Scientists use Hadoop: 

  • Transparent Parallelism 

With Hadoop, Data Scientists can write Java-based MapReduce code and use other big data tools in parallel. 

  • Data transport is easy 

Hadoop helps Data Scientists in transporting the data to different nodes on a system at a faster rate. 

  • Load data into Hadoop first 

The very first thing data scientists can do is to load data into Hadoop. For this, they need not do any transformations to get the data into the cluster. 

  • Easy data exploration 

With Hadoop, Data Scientists can easily explore and figure out the complexities in the data. 

  • Data Filtering 

Hadoop helps data scientists to filter a subset of data based on requirementsand address a specific business problem. 

  • Sampling for data modelling 

Sampling in Hadoop gives a hint to Data Scientists on what approach might work best for data modelling.
