Practicing Hadoop with a packaged sandbox VM in your Laptop is like learning to play a guitar with out a guitar. To learn Hadoop right, you need access to a multi-node environment. You will get free access to our multi node cluster along with this course.

Tired Of Word Count ?

Why does everyone try to explain MapReduce with the word count problem? Don't worry we don't use word count to explain MapReduce. We will teach you MapReduce in an interesting way like no one has taught you MapReduce before.
Non Programmer

We Don't Stop With Basics

This course is Free but that does not mean this course only covers "What is Hadoop?". With this course you will get a deep understanding of HDFS & MapReduce. Infact, with our free cluster access you will have hands on experience with HDFS and MapReduce.
Real Problem

Bonus Lessons

In addition to HDFS and MapReduce this course will also give you a very good introduction to Apache Pig & Hive. Again, you can try Pig & Hive in our cluster. Plus, you will learn what is Cloudera Manager and how to setup a Hadoop cluster on cloud using Cloudera Manager.
Caring Support
