BIG DATA INFRASTRUCTURE

Course Code: CEBD 1261
So, you had your introduction to Big Data, then you learned all about analytics. Now it's time to look at the systems you'll need to manage all that data and make sense of it. In this course, you'll review the state-of-the-art infrastructures used for high-performance storage and processing of data. You'll study distributed systems like Hadoop, NoSQL database systems like Mongo DB, as well as clusters and clouds, like Amazon EC2 and Microsoft Azure. You'll also use programming models like Hadoop MapReduce and Apache Spark to leverage those systems. If technical talk like that gets your heart racing, this is definitely the course for you. It's also the last course you'll need to earn your Big Data Certificate. Don't stop now, you're almost there!
