Hortonworks HDB Series

1) How to Install Hortonworks HDB on Hortonworks HDP – Sept 21

This webcast is the first in a five-part series on Hortonworks HDB, demonstrating the installation procedures for installing Hortonworks HDB on Hortonworks HDP. HDB’s integration with Apache Ambari allows you to install and manage your high-performance SQL database alongside other Hadoop services.  Starting with an existing HDP cluster, it will cover any required prerequisites and then leveraging Apache Ambari to complete the install.

2) How to use PXF with Hortonworks HDB –  Oct 5

Part two in a five-part series, this webcast will be a demonstration of Pivotal Extension Framework (PXF), an extensible framework that allows Hortonworks HDB to query external system data. This is really useful for both data loading, and also avoiding data loading for data that doesn’t need to reside within the database instance.  PXF includes built-in connectors for accessing data inside HDFS files, Hive tables via Catalog, and HBase tables.

3) How to manage Hortonworks HDB resources with YARN  – Oct 19

Part three in a five-part series, this webcast will be a demonstration of the integration of Hortonworks HDB and Apache Hadoop YARN. YARN provides the global resource management for HDB for cluster-level hardware efficiency, while the in-database resource queues and operators provide the database and query-level resource management for workload prioritization and query optimization. This webinar will focus on demonstrating the installation process as well as discuss the various YARN and HDB parameters and best practice settings.

4) How to get started with Apache MADlib on Hortonworks HDB – Nov 2

Part four in a five-part series, this webcast will be a demonstration of  the installation of Apache MADlib (incubating), an open source library for scalable in-database analytics, into Hortonworks HDB.   MADlib is an open-source library for scalable in-database analytics. It provides data-parallel implementations of mathematical, statistical and machine learning methods for structured and unstructured data. This webinar will demonstrate the installation procedures, as well as some basic machine learning algorithms to verify the install.

5) How to use Apache Zeppelin with Hortonworks HDB – Nov 16

Part five in a five-part series, this webcast will be a demonstration of the integration of Apache Zeppelin and Pivotal HDB. Apache Zeppelin is a web-based notebook that enables interactive data analytics.   You can make beautiful data-driven, interactive and collaborative documents with SQL, Scala and more. This webinar will demonstrate the configuration of the psql interpreter and the basic operations of Apache Zeppelin when used in conjunction with Hortonworks HDB.
