About This Course
Big SQL is another tool to work with your Hadoop data. Big SQL provides a common and familiar syntax for those that are already using SQL with their relational data to work with their big data. There is no learning curve here. Big SQL is about applying SQL to your existing data – there are no proprietary storage formats.
This course will help you understand the Big SQL architecture and show the different methods for working with Big SQL. The course will list and explain the Big SQL data types and show how to create Big SQL schemas and table. The course will also cover the different file formats supported by Big SQL such as parquet and ORC.
In the lab exercises, you will get a chance to learn how to connect to the Big SQL server and load in some sample data. Then you will see how easy it is to use Big SQL to work with the data.
