AWS re:Invent 2017: Batch Processing with Containers on AWS (CON304)

Published on Dec 01, 2017

Batch processing is useful to analyze large amounts of data. But configuring and scaling a cluster of virtual machines to process complex batch jobs can be difficult. In this talk, we'll show how to use containers on AWS for batch processing jobs that can scale quickly and cost-effectively. We will also discuss AWS Batch, our fully managed batch-processing service. You'll also hear from GoPro and Here about how they use AWS to run batch processing jobs at scale including best practices for ensuring efficient scheduling, fine-grained monitoring, compute resource automatic scaling, and security for your batch jobs.
