AWS re:Invent 2016: Real-time Data Processing Using AWS Lambda (SVR301)


Serverless architecture can eliminate the need to provision and manage servers required to process files or streaming data in real time.
In this session, we will cover the fundamentals of using AWS Lambda to process data in real-time from push sources such as AWS Iot and pull sources such as Amazon DynamoDB Streams or Amazon Kinesis. We will walk through sample use cases and demonstrate how to set up some of these real-time data processing solutions. We’ll also discuss best practices and do a deep dive into AWS Lambda real-time stream processing.

You also hear from speakers from Thomson Reuters, who discuss how the company leverages AWS for its Product Insight service. The service provides insights to collect usage analytics for Thomson Reuters products. The speakers walk through its architecture and demonstrate how they leverage Amazon Kinesis Streams, Amazon Kinesis Firehose, AWS Lambda, Amazon S3, Amazon Route 53, and AWS KMS for near real-time access to data being collected around the globe. They also outline how applying AWS methodologies benefited its business, such as time-to-market and cross-region ingestion, auto-scaling capabilities, low-latency, security features, and extensibility.
