About this Course

This course covers how to access and protect cluster data. You learn how to create and modify data, how to configure Virtual IP Addresses to provide highly available access to the cluster, then use Access Control Expressions (ACEs) for flexible configuration of access permissions by user, group, or role. The course goes on to cover using snapshots and mirrors to protect your data, including the use of cascading and remote mirrors.

This is the third course in the MapR Cluster Administration Series.
