Moving Data from MySQL to Hadoop with Sqoop Training Course


Sqoop is an open source software tool for transfering data between Hadoop and relational databases or mainframes. It can be used to import data from a relational database management system (RDBMS) such as MySQL or Oracle or a mainframe into the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). Thereafter, the data can be transformed in Hadoop MapReduce, and then re-exported back into an RDBMS.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn how to use Sqoop to import data from a traditional relational database to Hadoop storage such HDFS or Hive and vice versa.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Install and configure Sqoop
  • Import data from MySQL to HDFS and Hive
  • Import data from HDFS and Hive to MySQL


  • System administrators
  • Data engineers
