HDP Operations: Migrating to the Hortonworks Data Platform


Hortonworks University announces a new operationally focused course for Apache Hadoop administrators. This two-day training course is designed for Hadoop administrators who are familiar with administering other Hadoop distributions and are migrating to the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). Through a combination of lecture and hands-on exercises you will learn how to install, configure, maintain and scale an HDP cluster

Target Audience

This course is designed for experienced Hadoop administrators and operators who will be responsible for installing, configuring and supporting the Hortonworks Data Platform.


In this two-day course, we will cover:

  • HDP installation, configuration, and planning
  • Apache components Hive and Tez
  • Backup and recovery
  • Securing HDP
  • High availability
  • Migrating from CDH to HDP

All done through lecture and hands-on lab exercises.


Attendees should be familiar with the fundamentals of Hadoop, including HDFS and YARN, and have experience administering a Hadoop cluster, including configuring job schedulers, rack awareness, security, and adding/removing nodes. Students should also know how to install and configure the various components in the Hadoop ecosystem like Sqoop, Flume, Hive, Pig and Oozie.


We anticipate that this course will be ready for delivery in early November.

What a cheeky but useful course!! Seems like everyone is anticipating even higher defection rates to Hortonworks (especially if you adopt MPP SQL via investment in Apache Drill!) 🙂
