  • Einführung in Big-Data-Systeme und -Technologien
  • Große Datenmengen speichern und verarbeiten
  • Einsatz zahlreicher instruments wie Hadoop, Apache Cassandra, Apache hurricane uvm.

Daten müssen mittlerweile von den meisten Unternehmen in irgendeiner shape verarbeitet werden. Dabei können sehr schnell so große Datenmengen entstehen, dass herkömmliche Datenbanksysteme nicht mehr ausreichen. Big-Data-Systeme erfordern Architekturen, die in der Lage sind, Datenmengen nahezu beliebigen Umfangs zu speichern und zu verarbeiten. Dies bringt grundlegende Anforderungen mit sich, mit denen viele Entwickler noch nicht vertraut sind.

Die Autoren erläutern die Einrichtung solcher Datenhaltungssysteme anhand eines speziell für große Datenmengen ausgelegten Frameworks: der Lambda-Architektur. Hierbei handelt es sich um einen skalierbaren, leicht verständlichen Ansatz, der auch von kleinen groups implementiert und langfristig betrieben werden kann.

Die Grundlagen von Big-Data-Systemen werden anhand eines realistischen Beispiels praktisch umgesetzt. In diesem Kontext lernen Sie neben einem allgemeinen Framework zur Verarbeitung großer Datenmengen auch Technologien wie Hadoop, hurricane und NoSQL-Datenbanken kennen.

Dieses Buch setzt keinerlei Vorkenntnisse über instruments zur Datenanalyse oder NoSQL voraus, grundlegende Erfahrungen im Umgang mit herkömmlichen Datenbanken sind aber durchaus hilfreich.

Aus dem Inhalt:

  • Big-Data-Systeme und -Technologien
