Hadoop and Spark Essentials

New to Hadoop and Spark or still need to sharpen your understanding? Trying to figure out what Sqoop, Flume or Hive are and what they can be used for? If so, you're not alone. Hands on Hadoop and Spark is the ultimate guide to help you take your understanding to the next level. Join Cloudera as we take you through the origins of Hadoop, discuss existing and new projects, what they are used for, and how you can apply Hadoop and Spark to modernize your data architecture.

Architecture Modernization -Kafka and Spark 101

As organizations become dependent on bringing in more data for analysis new demands are placed on the systems that process and ingest data.  Slow performance and data format restrictions can cause delays in delivering insights to the business or prohibit data from even being captured.  Cloudera Enterprise offers a modern solution for ingesting and processing data quickly and securely.  Users are leveraging our tools to build end-to-end pipelines to power their business.  Learn in-depth about how Kafka and Spark's operate in accelerating data delivery.   

Apache Hadoop Meets Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity has become the topic of conversation for organizations across every industry as attack surfaces have expanded with the digital, social, and mobile world. As it becomes more difficult to protect organizations, professionals are turning to new technologies in order to avoid massive reputational, monetary, and intellectual property losses. In recent years a convergence of factors have occurred that is putting Apache Hadoop and Apache Spark at the forefront of the cybersecurity arms race.
