In this course, you'll learn how to manage big datasets, how to load them into clusters and cloud storage, and how to apply structure to the data so that you can run queries on it using distributed SQL engines like Apache Hive and Apache Impala. You’ll learn how to choose the right data types, storage systems, and file formats based on which tools you’ll use and what performance you need.

By the end of the course, you will be able to
• use different tools to browse existing databases and tables in big data systems;
• use different tools to explore files in distributed big data filesystems and cloud storage;
• create and manage big data databases and tables using Apache Hive and Apache Impala; and
• describe and choose among different data types and file formats for big data systems.
