AWS re:Invent 2015 | (BDT208) A Technical Introduction to Amazon Elastic MapReduce

Bit Ninja


Amazon EMR provides a managed framework which makes it easy, cost effective, and secure to run data processing frameworks such as Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark, and Presto on AWS. In this session, you learn the key design principles behind running these frameworks on the cloud and the feature set that Amazon EMR offers. We discuss the benefits of decoupling compute and storage and strategies to take advantage of the scale and the parallelism that the cloud offers, while lowering costs. Additionally, you hear from AOL’s Senior Software Engineer on how they used these strategies to migrate their Hadoop workloads to the AWS cloud and lessons learned along the way.

In this session, you learn the benefits of decoupling storage and compute and allowing them to scale independently; how to run Hadoop, Spark, Presto and other supported Hadoop Applications on Amazon EMR; how to use Amazon S3 as a persistent data-store and process data directly from Amazon S3; dDeployment strategies and how to avoid common mistakes when deploying at scale; and how to use Spot instances to scale your transient infrastructure effectively.
