This book is a practical guide on using the Apache Hadoop projects including MapReduce, HDFS, Apache Hive, Apache HBase, Apache Kafka, Apache Mahout and Apache Solr. From setting up the environment to running sample applications each chapter is a practical tutorial on using a Apache Hadoop ecosystem project.
