Hadoop Services - ScienceSoft

Hadoop services help businesses efficiently build big data solutions based on HDFS, MapReduce, and YARN, as well as other Apache projects, custom and commercial tools. Such solutions enable big data ingestion, storage, querying, indexing, transfer, streaming, and analysis.

All the Help You Need with Hadoop Projects

ScienceSoft offers all kinds of services to help mid-sized and large businesses build tailored operational and analytical big data systems. We cover everything — from strategy and project planning to implementation and managed services. With mature project management practices, we drive projects to their goals regardless of time and budget constraints.

Hadoop consulting

Hadoop consulting is a way to get expert advice and guidance on how to effectively implement, migrate, and configure Hadoop. ScienceSoft's Hadoop consultants can:

  • Audit the existing IT environment.
  • Analyze potential Hadoop use cases.
  • Conduct a feasibility study.
  • Create a business case, including ROI estimation.
  • Design/redesign the architecture of a Hadoop-powered solution.
  • Improve performance and security.
  • Conduct Hadoop-related training for your in-house teams.
  • Develop a disaster recovery plan, and more.

Hadoop development services

Hadoop development services refer to creating Hadoop-powered solutions tailored to an organization's specific needs. These services include:

  • Developing data ingestion and data quality rules.
  • Creating custom algorithms for data processing and analysis, such as writing custom MapReduce code, Pig scripts, Hive queries, and machine learning algorithms.
  • Deploying, configuring, and integrating all architecture components of a big data solution.

QA and testing of Hadoop-based apps

To ensure the quality of a Hadoop-based application and its analytical and operational components, a comprehensive QA strategy and test plan must be designed and executed. This involves:

  • Creating a test automation architecture.
  • Selecting the most suitable testing toolkit.
  • Creating and maintaining a test environment.
  • Generating and managing test data.
  • Developing, executing, and maintaining test cases and scripts for functional, regression, integration, performance, and security testing.

Hadoop support

Hadoop support is a way to ensure the smooth and efficient operation of Hadoop-based apps. These services may involve:

  • Problem resolution, root-cause analysis, and corrective actions.
  • Bug fixing.
  • Upgrades.
  • Backups and disaster recovery.
  • Continuous performance and security monitoring and management.
  • Development of new logic for data processing, cleaning, and transformation.

Support services can be provided on an ongoing basis or as needed, depending on the organization's requirements.

Hadoop migration

Hadoop migration is the process of moving data and applications from one Hadoop environment to another. This can involve:

  • Planning and implementing migration from an on-premises Hadoop cluster to a cloud-based Hadoop environment, e.g., on AWS, Azure.
  • Migrating from one Hadoop distribution to another, e.g., from a commercial Hadoop distribution (e.g., Cloudera Data Platform, Hortonworks Data Platform) to vanilla Hadoop.

Join Our Happy Clients

We needed a proficient big data consultancy to deploy a Hadoop lab for us and to support us on the way to its successful and fast adoption. ScienceSoft's team proved their mastery in a vast range of big data technologies we required: Hadoop Distributed File System, Hadoop MapReduce, Apache Hive, Apache Ambari, Apache Oozie, Apache Spark, Apache ZooKeeper are just a couple of names. ScienceSoft's team also showed themselves great consultants. Special thanks for supporting us during the transition period. Whenever a question arose, we got it answered almost instantly.

We would certainly recommend ScienceSoft as a highly competent and reliable partner.

Hadoop-Related Technologies We Use

Head of Data Analytics at ScienceSoft

We typically recommend Hadoop deployment in the cloud for applications requiring elasticity and potential changes in computing resource consumption. On-premises deployment may be a viable option for projects with strict security requirements, a static scope, and a willingness to invest in hardware, office space, and DevOps team ramp-up.


To build a Hadoop-based application, should we simply install and tune all the required frameworks?

Building a Hadoop-based solution is a lot more than that. 95% of big data implementation is custom development.

It looks like a huge, long-lasting project that costs a fortune. How do you manage investment risks?

We always conduct a feasibility study, target positive financial outcomes, and deliver ROI estimates. We also ensure our clients start getting value early and proceed iteratively.

Can we use Hadoop for real-time data processing?

Yes, absolutely. For that, ScienceSoft can leverage such techs as Apache Storm, Apache Spark Streaming, Apache Samza, and Apache Flume.
