In this post, I introduce a simple data ingestion and preparation framework based on AWS Lambda, Amazon DynamoDB, and Apache Hive on EMR for data from different sources landing in S3. This solution lets Hive pick up new partitions as data is loaded into S3 because Hive by itself cannot detect new partitions as data lands.
In this post, I suggest ways you can monitor the Amazon Kinesis Client Library (KCL) application you use to process DynamoDB Streams to quickly track and resolve issues or failures so you can avoid losing data. Dashboards, metrics, and application logs all play a part. This post may be most relevant to Java applications running on Amazon EC2 instances.
Asmita Barve-Karandikar is an SDE with DynamoDB Introduction Imagine you own a popular mobile health app, with millions of users worldwide, that continuously records new information. It sends over one million updates per second to its master data store and needs the updates to be relayed to various replicas across different regions in real time. […]
Asmita Barve-Karandikar is an SDE with DynamoDB Customers often want to process streams on an Amazon DynamoDB table with a significant number of partitions or with a high throughput. AWS Lambda and the DynamoDB Streams Kinesis Adapter are two ways to consume DynamoDB streams in a scalable way. While Lambda lets you run your application […]
Ben Snively is a Solutions Architect with AWS With big data, you deal with many different formats and large volumes of data. SQL-style queries have been around for nearly four decades. Many systems support SQL-style syntax on top of the data layers, and the Hadoop/Spark ecosystem is no exception. This allows companies to try new […]

Manjeet Chayel is a Solutions Architect with AWS Every day, tons of customer data is generated, such as website logs, gaming data, advertising data, and streaming videos. Many companies capture this information as it’s generated and process it in real time to understand their customers. Amazon DynamoDB is a fast and flexible NoSQL database service […]
At AWS re:Invent 2017, we announced the preview of Amazon Neptune, a fast and reliable graph database built for the cloud. Neptune is fully managed and highly available, and it includes read replicas, point-in-time recovery, and continuous backups to Amazon S3. If you are about to build an application yourself and need a graph database, […]
At AWS re:Invent 2017, we announced the preview of Amazon Neptune, a fast and reliable graph database built for the cloud. Though this blog post still shows the benefits a graph database can deliver for certain use cases, if you are about to build an application yourself and need a graph database, you should first […]
