CISC 525 Big Data Architectures

Government, academia and industry have spent a great deal of time, effort, and money dealing with increases in the volume, variety, and velocity of collected data. Collection methods, storage facilities, search capabilities, and analytical tools have all needed to adapt to the masses of data now available. Google paved the way for a new paradigm in Big Data, with two seminal white papers describing the Google File System, a distributed file system for massive storage, and MapReduce, a distributed programing framework designed to work on data stored in the distributed file system. This course introduces the student to the concepts of Big Data and describes the usage of distributed file systems and MapReduce programming framework to provide skills applicable to developers and the data scientist in any facet of industry.
