Big Data is a natural evolution of data analysis, scaling beyond the limits of conventional databases. However, this does not mean that databases are dead. On the contrary, they are still an important part of a Hadoop cluster and used to store all kinds of information by multiple services. In this course, Preparing Databases for Your Production Hadoop Cloudera Cluster, you'll learn how to setup databases for Cloudera CDH and install a production grade cluster using Cloudera's Installation Path B. First, you'll discover how to select, initialize, and install a supported database. Next, you'll explore how to configure a database with Cloudera's recommended settings, and how to create databases with CDH services. Finally, you'll learn how to complete a CDH deployment. By the end of this course, you'll be able to deploy a production grade cluster.
