AWS re:Invent 2016: Deep Dive: Amazon EMR Best Practices & Design Patterns (BDM401)

Published on Dec 01, 2016

Amazon EMR is one of the largest Hadoop operators in the world. In this session, we introduce you to Amazon EMR design patterns such as using Amazon S3 instead of HDFS, taking advantage of both long and short-lived clusters, and other Amazon EMR architectural best practices. We talk about how to scale your cluster up or down dynamically and introduce you to ways you can fine-tune your cluster. We also share best practices to keep your Amazon EMR cluster cost-efficient. Finally, we dive into some of our recent launches to keep you current on our latest features. This session will feature Asurion, a provider of device protection and support services for over 280 million smartphones and other consumer electronics devices. Asurion will share how they architected their petabyte-scale data platform using Apache Hive, Apache Spark, and Presto on Amazon EMR.
