Hadoop Tutorial – Working with the Apache Hue GUI


When working with the main Hadoop services, it is not necessary to work with the console at all time (event though this is the most powerful way of doing so). Most Hadoop distributions also come with a User Interface. The user interface is called “Apache Hue” and is a web-based interface running on top of a distribution. Apache Hue integrates major Hadoop projects in the UI such as Hive, Pig and HCatalog. The nice thing about Apache Hue is that it makes the management of your Hadoop installation pretty easy with a great web-based UI.

The following screenshot shows Apache Hue on the Cloudera distribution.

I work as Big Data Architect for Microsoft. With this role, I support my customers in applying Big Data technologies - mainly Hadoop/Spark - for their use-cases. I also teach this topic at various universities and frequently speak at various Conferences. In 2010 I wrote a book about Cloud Computing, which is often used at German & Austrian Universities. In my home country (Austria) I am part of several organisations on Big Data.
