Apache Hadoop on Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa

Ubuntu 20.04 Hadoop

Apache Hadoop is comprised of multiple open source software packages that work together for distributed storage and distributed processing of big data. There are four main components to Hadoop:

  • Hadoop Common – the various software libraries that Hadoop depends on to run
  • Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) – a file system that allows for efficient distribution and storage of big data across a cluster of computers
  • Hadoop MapReduce – used for processing the data
  • Hadoop YARN – an API that manages the allocation of computing resources for the entire cluster

In this tutorial, we will go over the steps to install Hadoop version 3 on Ubuntu 20.04. This will involve installing HDFS (Namenode and Datanode), YARN, and MapReduce on a single node cluster configured in Pseudo Distributed Mode, which is distributed simulation on a single machine. Each component of Hadoop (HDFS, YARN, MapReduce) will run on our node as a separate Java process.

  • How to add users for Hadoop Environment
  • How to install Java prerequisite
  • How to configure passwordless SSH

How to use the Tor network to browse online on Ubuntu 20.04 Desktop/Server

Install Tor proxy on Ubuntu 20.04 Linux

Tor is free software that allows a user to have complete anonymity online. It can be used to avoid having websites and applications track your location or attempt to identify you.

It’s often used to avoid region blocks on the likes of Netflix or YouTube. Some users like it because it prevents ad tracking companies from building a profile on you based on your browsing habits and serving personalized ads. Still, others are just a little paranoid and appreciate the assurance that no one can spy on their internet activity.
