CVF 2071 - Hadoop Administration

Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture 2 Lab 1
Course Description: This course builds on topics in CVF 1071  , Introduction to Big Data Analytics and Security.  It provides students with a comprehensive introduction to the steps necessary to install, configure, operate, and maintain Hadoop.  The course begins with an overview of the Big Data landscape and then dives into a system administration working view of running Hadoop.  Students will also have the opportunity to install Splunk on top of Hadoop and examine how to process and analyze the data using Splunk’s Search Processing Language (SPL) as an implementation of MapReduce function.  This course employs both “open source technology” (Hadoop) and “commercial technology” (Splunk).
MnTC Goals

Prerequisite(s): CVF 1071   and CVF 1205  with grades of C or higher, or instructor consent.
