Amazon’s Big Data Suite – Part 2
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

 

In Part 1 we started our study of Amazon Services and looked at Amazon EC2. In this part, we will look at other Amazon services like EMR, DynamoDB and RDS.

 

  • 1.      Amazon Elastic Map Reduce
  • Amazon EMR is a web service which makes cloud computing very easy. Amazon’s EMR cluster comes preconfigured with Hadoop, which as mentioned earlier is a data processing and storage framework. This preconfiguration makes it very easy to start analysing your data in no time. Amazon EMR has applications in machine learning, financial analysis, bioinformatics etc.

     

    Just like EC2, you can launch any number of EMR instances as you need and you will only be charged for the computing power you have used.

    The network is reliable
    +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    A fascinating post-mortem on high profile network failures:

    This post is meant as a reference point–to illustrate that, according to a wide range of accounts, partitions occur in many real-world environments. Processes, servers, NICs, switches, local and wide area networks can all fail, and the resulting economic consequences are real. Network outages can suddenly arise in systems that are stable for months at a time, during routine upgrades, or as a result of emergency maintenance. The consequences of these outages range from increased latency and temporary unavailability to inconsistency, corruption, and data loss. Split-brain is not an academic concern: it happens to all kinds of systems–sometimes for days on end. Partitions deserve serious consideration.

    Open APIs are the new open source
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    We’ve seen the rise of open source software in the enterprise and also beyond the IT industry, but the real keys to openness and its advantages in today’s technology world — where efficient use of cloud computing and supporting services are paramount — exist in open application programming interfaces, or APIs.

    Open source software continues to be a critical part of software development, systems administration, IT operations and more, but much of the action in leveraging modern cloud computing and services-based infrastructures centers on APIs. Open APIs are the new open source.

    Saw this awesome infographic by Cloud Spectator on twitter today. A great snapshot of the expected growth in Cloud Computing. If the Cloud Computing market was stacked up against world economies it would be the 51st largest in the world with massive inequality - Amazon has half the share.

    Open Source Enables the Cloud
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    With the fast growth of virtualized data centers, and companies like Google, Amazon and Facebook, it's easy to forget how much is built on open-source components, aka commodity software.  In a very real way open-source has enabled the huge explosion of commodity hardware, the fast growth of the internet itself, and now the further acceleration through cloud services, cloud infrastructure, and virtualization of data centers.

    Your typical internet stack and application now stands on the shoulders of tens of thousands of open source developers and projects.  Let's look at a few of them.

    1. Operating System - Linux

    The commodity hardware craze would never have happened without the help of an open-source operating system to run on it.  Linux is an old story now, nonetheless everything else stands on it's shoulders.

    8 Questions to ask an AWS Expert
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    If you're headhunting a cloud computing expert, specifically someone who knows Amazon Web Services (AWS) and EC2, you'll want to have a battery of questions to ask them to assess their knowledge.  As with any technical interview focus on concepts and big picture.  As the 37Signals folks like to say "hire for attitude, train for skill".  Absolutely!

    1. Explain Elastic Block Storage?  What type of performance can you expect?  How do you back it up?  How do you improve performance?

    EBS is a virtualized SAN or storage area network.  That means it is RAID storage to start with so it's redundant and fault tolerant.  If disks die in that RAID you don't lose data.  Great!  It is also virtualized, so you can provision and allocate storage, and attach it to your server with various API
