Real Time Transactional SQL on Hadoop

  • Dell Office

    Transformatorweg 38, Amsterdam (map)

    52.392330 4.848900

  • The second meetup in the Future of Data series has speakers from Pivotal and Hortonworks, and will focus on real-time (and near-real-time) reporting tasks on the basis of the Hadoop stack.

    We thank Dell for kindly hosting us in their great office in the Amsterdam Sloterdijk area.


    17:00 - Arrive, drink, eat

    17:45 - Presentations

    1. Install and Admin of Apache HAWQ on Hortonworks with Apache Ambari

    Learn how to install and manage Apache HAWQ on a Hadoop Cluster. 

    Speaker: Tony van Büüren van Heijst, Pivotal

    If you bring your laptop and complete the installation exercise, you will leave with a functioning HAWQ instance in a Hortonworks Sandbox for you to play around with on your own time.

    Apache HAWQ <- Note LInk, is an elastic, parallel processing query engine that operates on all your data directly within Hadoop. It provides the highest degree of ANSI-SQL completeness to execute sophisticated queries for advanced analytics and data science.

    In this session we'll cover:

    1. Installation of baseline Hortonworks Sandbox

    2. Installation and configuration of Apache HAWQ using Ambari

    3. Tour of administrative capabilities of HAWQ using Ambari

    4. Running a smoke test by executing queries with HAWQ

    5. Connecting Apache Zeppelin to your HAWQ instance

    System prerequisites

    To participate in the hands-on portion, please bring a laptop with the following:

    VirtualBox 4.2 or later, or VMWare 5.0 or later installed Pre-downloaded Sandbox VM with HAWQ

    Please download the lab image VM and uncompress it ahead of time.
