In this tutorial, we will focus on the data ingestion tool Apache Sqoop for processing big data.
Most of the web application portals are stored in Relation databases. These relational databases are the most common source for data storage. We need to transfer this data into the Hadoop system for analysis and processing purposes for various applications. Sqoop is a data ingestion tool that is designed to transfer data between RDBMS systems(such as Oracle, MySQL, SQL Server, Postgres, Teradata, etc) and Hadoop HDFS.
