HDP Operations: Administration Foundations (HDPOAF)


Course Overview

This four-day instructor-led training course provides students with the foundational knowledge required to plan, deploy, configure, and manage a cluster running the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP).

Who should attend

This course is designed primarily for system administrators and system operators responsible for installing, configuring, and managing an HDP cluster.


Students must have experience working in a Linux environment with standard Linux system commands. Students should be able to read and execute basic Linux shell scripts. In addition, we recommend that students have some operational experience in data center practices.
