Upon completion of the course, attendees receive a certificate from GlobalEdx. This certificate will be a great differentiator in this field by providing employers and customers a good evidence of your skills and expertise.


This course is appropriate for system administrators who will be setting up or maintaining a Hadoop cluster. Good knowledge of Linux is required and some fundamental Linux scripting knowledge is required.Some basic Linux system administration experience is a prerequisite for this training session. Prior knowledge of Hadoop is not required.

  • Why Hadoop Administrattion course?
    Administrators are leading the transition from traditional databases and data warehouses to more flexible, scalable systems built on Apache Hadoop. We provide all the training needeed for you to drive Big Data strategy from Hadoop implementation and cluster monitoring with complete exposure to security and scaling at massive speed.
  • Why lead the Hadoop Movement?
    Hadoop is quickly becoming the most important component in the data stack, enabling open management and rapid processing of data at petabyte scale. Prepare to lead at every step in the data value chain and develop the skills to transform complex data sets and enable high-value analytics alongside core systems maintenance and utilization.
  • Who should attend this course?
    • Professionals aspiring to make a career in Big Data Analytics using Hadoop Framework.
    • System Administrators and Support Engineers who will maintain and troubleshoot Hadoop clusters in production or development environments.
