(4.9 out of 5)

I have started learning 3 months ago and I really gained much info and practical experience. I completed the “Big Data with Spark” course and the learning journey really exceeded my expectations.

The course structure and topics were great, well organized and comprehensive, even the basics of Linux were covered in a very simple way. There were always exercises and hands-on that build better understanding, also the lab environment and provided online tools were great help and let you practice everything without having to install anything on your PC except the web browser.

In addition, for the live sessions, it was really a joy attending them each weekend, our instructor “Sandeep Giri”, besides his great experience and knowledge, he was generous, helpful and patient answering all attendees questions in such a way that he could go for more examples and hands-on or even searching the documentation and try new things, I gained much from other attendees’ questions and the way Sandeep responded to them.

This was a great experience having this course and I’m going for more courses in Big Data and Machine Learning with CloudxLab and I recommend it for all my friends and colleagues who look for better learning.


Must have for practicing and perfecting hadoop. To setup in PC you need to have a very high end configuration and setup will be pseudo node setup.. For better understanding I recomend CloudxLab


This course is suitable for everyone. Me being a product manager had not done hands-on coding since quite some time. Python was completely new to me. However, Sandeep Giri gave us a crash course to Python and then introduced us to Machine Learning. Also, the CloudxLab’s environment was very useful to just log in and start practising coding and playing with things learnt. A good mix of theory and practical exercises and specifically the sequence of starting straight away with a project and then going deeper was a very good way of teaching. I would recommend this course to all.


They are great. They take care of all the Big Data technologies (Hadoop, Spark, Hive, etc.) so you do not have to worry about installing and running them correclty on your pc. Plus, they have a fantastic customer support. Even when I have had problems debugging my own programs, they have answered me with the correct solution in a few hours, and all of this for a more than reasonable price. I personally recommend it to everyone :)


Machine learning courses in especially the Artificial Intelligence for the manager course is excellent in CloudxLab. I have attended some of the course and able to understand as Sandeep Giri sir has taught AI course from scratch and related to our data to day life…

He even takes free sessions to helps students and provides career guidance.

His courses are worthy and even just by watching YouTube video anyone can easily crack the AI interview.


It is a self-paced course. You will get access to videos, quizzes, hands-on assessments and projects. If you have any doubts during your learning journey, you can post it on the discussion forum. Our experts and community will assist you over there.

For self-paced course, we provide 100% fees refund if the request is raised within 7 days from enrollment date. Please contact us at to request a refund within the stipulated time. Thereafter, no refund is provided.

We understand that you might need course material for a longer duration to make most out of your subscription. You will get lifetime access to the course material so that you can refer to the course material anytime.

  1. Basics Of SQL. You should know the basics of SQL and databases. If you know about filters in SQL, you are expected to understand the course.

  2. A know-how of the basics of programming. If you understand 'loops' in any programming language, and if you are able to create a directory and see what's inside a file from the command line, you are good to get the concepts of this course even if you have not really touched programming for the last 10 years! In addition, we will be providing video classes on the basics of Python and Scala.

This course is a subpart of "Big Data Engineering with Hadoop and Spark by E&ICT, IIT Roorkee" course. If you are interested only in Hadoop then you can take up this course.

No, we will provide you with the access to our online lab and BootML so that you do not have to install anything on your local machine

Complete at least 60% of the topics of the course along with project Sentiment Analysis. All the above requirements need to be met within 60 days from the course enrollment date to be eligible for the certificate from E&ICT Academy, IIT Roorkee.

If you are not able to complete the mandatory requirements to earn the certificate before the deadline, you have two options

  1. You can send a mail to requesting for an extension of the deadline which will be chargeable. Once approved, you can complete the remaining within the new deadline.

  2. You can complete 100% of the course at your convenience and earn the certificate from CloudxLab. Click here to see a sample certificate
