Cloudera Training for Apache HBase

Course Description

Apache HBase is a distributed, scalable, NoSQL database built on Apache Hadoop. HBase can store data in massive tables consisting of billions of rows and millions of columns, serve data to many users and applications in real time, and provide fast, random read/write access to users and applications.

Audience & Prerequisites

This course is appropriate for developers and administrators who intend to use HBase. Prior experience with databases and data modeling is helpful, but not required. Knowledge of Java is assumed. Prior knowledge of Hadoop is not required, but Cloudera Developer Training for Apache Hadoop provides an excellent foundation for this course.

Hands-On Hadoop

Through instructor-led discussion and interactive, hands-on exercises, participants will navigate the Hadoop ecosystem, learning topics such as:

  • The use cases and usage occasions for HBase, Hadoop, and RDBMS
  • Using the HBase shell to directly manipulate HBase tables
  • Designing optimal HBase schemas for efficient data storage and recovery
  • How to connect to HBase using the Java API to insert and retrieve data in real time
  • Best practices for identifying and resolving performance bottlenecks

HBase Certification

Upon completion of the course, attendees are encouraged to continue their study and register for the Cloudera Certified Specialist in Apache HBase (CCSHB) exam. Certification is a great differentiator; it helps establish you as a leader in the field, providing employers and customers with tangible evidence of your expertise.
