Pivotal Greenplum Architecture, Administration and Implementation

( Duration: 5 Days )

In Greenplum Architecture, Administration, and Implementation training course, attendees will learn to design and implement the Greenplum environment and gain the information needed to install, configure, and manage the Greenplum database system. They will be introduced to the Greenplum environment, consisting of the Greenplum Database and supported systems. They will learn the fundamental concepts on data warehousing, business intelligence, and how Greenplum helps to solve business problems in managing and analyzing big data. They will evaluate logical models and business requirements to determine the best physical design for a Greenplum database.

By attending Greenplum - Administration workshop, attendees will learn:

  • Greenplum features, benefits, and architecture in terms of shared nothing and the Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) design
  • Support redundancy and high availability with Greenplum
  • Data models used in data warehousing and how data is stored in Greenplum
  • Install, initialize, validate, and configure Greenplum Database
  • Manage database objects and workload management processes by defining and managing roles, privileges, and resource queues
  • Use table partitioning as a design methodology for handling large tables
  • Load data into a Greenplum database instance using external tables, SQL copy, insert commands, and parallel load utilities
  • Use data manipulation language and data query language to access, manage, and query data
  • Perform system administrative tasks, including managing and checking the state of the Greenplum database, its data, and the distribution of data
  • Perform backup and restoration of Greenplum data
  • Distribute and store data in Greenplum using a distribution key and partitioning
  • Use EXPLAIN and EXPLAIN ANALYZE to help the Greenplum query plan optimizer determine how to handle a submitted query
  • Improve query performance by keeping statistics up to date and tuning the database for sampling size and error conditions
  • Determine when it's best to use an index and what type of index to use
  • Improve query performance by following a number of performance enhancement tips

  • Basic UNIX or Linux command-line navigation and administration skills
  • Database query language basics, including basic SQL knowledge for accessing database objects
  • Fundamental relational database concepts

This course is intended for any person who presently or plans to:

  • Install Greenplum Database
  • Design and develop for Greenplum Database implementation
  • Administer and manage the Greenplum Database
