Implement Hadoop Solutions throughout the enterprise
If you're ready to make the most out of massively scalable analytics, you need to know how to take advantage of Hadoop technologies. With this guide, you'll learn how! It focuses on the architecture and approaches for building advanced, Hadoop-based enterprise applications, taking a deeper, code-level dive into delivering real-world solutions. It also walks you through the data design and how it impacts implementation. It explains how MapReduce works, and shows you how to reformulate specific business problems in MapReduce. Throughout the pages, you'll find in-depth Java code examples that you can use, derived from applications that have been successfully built and deployed.
Professional Hadoop Solutions:
- Explores the MapReduce architecture, its main components, and the MapReduce programming model
- Discusses how to create reliable MapReduce applications, including testing and debugging, as well as how to use built-in MapReduce facilities
- Explains how to extend Oozie and use it to integrate Hadoop-based implementations with other enterprise applications
- Describes how to build real-time Hadoop-based applications and how to leverage real-time Hadoop queries
- Shows how to extend Hadoop's security capabilities, including encryption, authentication, authorization, Single-Sign-On (SSO), and auditing
- Covers different approaches to running Hadoop in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud

After reading this book, I can say that Professional Hadoop Solutions does a very nice job at applying depth to some areas that are not covered elsewhere - or are covered very lightly in other material. This book starts with three chapters on MapReduce programming, which I have found helpful and provides deep insight. The first chapter is more of an intro, but the next two go deeper - and this is very useful. Oozie is covered in-depth in three chapters, and not too many books cover it - Oozie is critical to understand when you are developing practical, large-scale processing systems with Hadoop & when you are orchestrating lots of MR jobs. I found the chapters on security to be practical and helpful - something that is often not covered in other books. I'm glad that Hadoop on AWS is covered, but I wish that real-time Hadoop was covered more - although this is certainly a new area.
In all, this book covers practical Hadoop development in depth, and it is done clearly. I will point out that this is not a book that is simply an introduction and a reference guide (If you need that, I would use Hadoop: the Definitive Guide, which is great for that purpose), but this book goes deep, and it is one that helps me deal with practical problems. It has already helped me and I highly recommend it.
This book should have five stars and a glowing recommendation, but it is in dire need of editing. There are a ton of typos (even in source code), and some of the code samples are broken. One chapter describes how to build a dynamic Oozie workflow and the source they provided does not work and never could have since they are missing an XSD file reference entirely. When I added the reference it still did not work. This was very frustrating when I tried to implement this solution on a deadline.
The Professional Hadoop Solutions book provides the right level of background for those not fully versed in Cloud technologies while primarily being a great resource for a technical management team to offer to developers ready to experiment or implement realistic solutions. Thanks for publishing such a great resource Kevin and team!
