What is staging in Hadoop?
Keeping this in view, what is staging in database?
A staging database is used as a "working area" for your ETL. Olaf has a good definition: A staging database or area is used to load data from the sources, modify & cleansing them before you final load them into the DWH; mostly this is easier then to do this within one complex ETL process.
Also Know, what is replication in Hadoop? Replication factor in HDFS is the number of copies of a file in file system. A Hadoop application can specify the number of replicas of a file it wants HDFS to maintain. This information is stored in NameNode.
Beside this, what is a staging table?
staging tables are just database tables containing your business data in some form or other. Staging is the process of preparing your business data, usually taken from some business application. For your average BI system you have to prepare the data before loading it.
Why do we need staging table?
Staging area is a place where you hold temporary tables on data warehouse server. Staging tables are connected to work area or fact tables. We basically need staging area to hold the data, and perform data cleansing and merging, before loading the data into warehouse.
