Get started with Apache Hudi using AWS Glue by implementing key design concepts – Part 1

Many organizations build data lakes on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) using a modern architecture for a scalable and cost-effective solution. Open-source storage formats like Parquet and Avro are commonly used, and data is stored in these formats as immutable files. As the data lake is expanded to additional use cases, there are still […]

Build incremental crawls of data lakes with existing Glue catalog tables

AWS Glue includes crawlers, a capability that make discovering datasets simpler by scanning data in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and relational databases, extracting their schema, and automatically populating the AWS Glue Data Catalog, which keeps the metadata current. This reduces the time to insight by making newly ingested data quickly available for analysis […]

Code versioning using AWS Glue Studio and GitHub

AWS Glue now offers integration with Git, an open-source version control system widely used across the developer community. Thanks to this integration, you can incorporate your existing DevOps practices on AWS Glue jobs. AWS Glue is a serverless data integration service that helps you create jobs based on Apache Spark or Python to perform extract, […]

However, organizations embracing this approach still need insights from their data and require technologies that help them break down data silos. Amazon Athena is an interactive query service that makes it easy to analyze structured, unstructured, and semi-structured data stored in Amazon […]

Land data from databases to a data lake at scale using AWS Glue blueprints

To build a data lake on AWS, a common data ingestion pattern is to use AWS Glue jobs to perform extract, transform, and load (ETL) data from relational databases to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). A project often involves extracting hundreds of tables from source databases to the data lake raw layer. And for […]

Ingest streaming data to Apache Hudi tables using AWS Glue and Apache Hudi DeltaStreamer

In today’s world with technology modernization, the need for near-real-time streaming use cases has increased exponentially. Many customers are continuously consuming data from different sources, including databases, applications, IoT devices, and sensors. Organizations may need to ingest that streaming data into data lakes built on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). You may also need […]
