Description

HIGHLIGHT

Hadoop in Action

is an example-rich tutorial that shows developers how to

implement data-intensive distributed computing using Hadoop and the Map-

Reduce framework.

DESCRIPTION

Hadoop is an open source implementation of Google’s MapReduce framework

for scalable, distributed data processing. Hadoop in Action is for programmers,

architects, and project managers who have to process large amounts of data

offline.

The book begins with several simple examples that illustrate the basic idea

behind Hadoop. Later chapters explain the core framework components and

demonstrate Hadoop in a variety of data analysis tasks. Throughout the book,

readers will learn best practices and design patterns, and how to write meaningful

programs in a MapReduce framework.
