Customers face a challenge when distributing cloud resources between different teams running workloads such as development, testing, or production. The resource distribution challenge also occurs when you have different line-of-business users. The objective is not only to ensure sufficient resources be consistently available to production workloads and critical teams, but also to prevent adhoc jobs […]
Query big data with resilience using Trino in Amazon EMR with Amazon EC2 Spot Instances for less cost
New enhancements in Trino with Amazon EMR provide improved resiliency for running ETL and batch workloads on Spot Instances with reduced costs. This post showcases the resilience of Amazon EMR with Trino using fault-tolerant configuration to run long-running queries on Spot Instances to save costs. We simulate Spot interruptions on Trino worker nodes by using AWS Fault Injection Simulator (AWS FIS).
Currently, Iceberg provides a compaction utility that compacts small files at a table or partition level. But this approach requires you to implement the compaction job using your preferred job scheduler or manually triggering the compaction job. In this post, we discuss the new Iceberg feature that you can use to automatically compact small files while writing data into Iceberg tables using Spark on Amazon EMR or Amazon Athena.
To build a data-driven business, it is important to democratize enterprise data assets in a data catalog. With a unified data catalog, you can quickly search datasets and figure out data schema, data format, and location. The AWS Glue Data Catalog provides a uniform repository where disparate systems can store and find metadata to keep […]
Accelerate your data exploration and experimentation with the AWS Analytics Reference Architecture library
Organizations use their data to solve complex problems by starting small, running iterative experiments, and refining the solution. Although the power of experiments can’t be ignored, organizations have to be cautious about the cost-effectiveness of such experiments. If time is spent creating the underlying infrastructure for enabling experiments, it further adds to the cost. Developers […]
Apache Hudi is an open-source transactional data lake framework that greatly simplifies incremental data processing and data pipeline development. It does this by bringing core warehouse and database functionality directly to a data lake on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) or Apache HDFS. Hudi provides table management, instantaneous views, efficient upserts/deletes, advanced indexes, streaming […]
Update Feb 2023: AWS Step Functions adds direct integration for 35 services including Amazon EMR Serverless. In the current version of this blog, we are able to submit an EMR Serverless job by invoking the APIs directly from a Step Functions workflow. We are using the Lambda only for polling the status of the job […]
If you are currently running Amazon EMR 5.X clusters, consider moving to Amazon EMR 6.X as it includes new features that helps you improve performance and optimize on cost. For instance, Apache Hive is two times faster with LLAP on Amazon EMR 6.X, and Spark 3 reduces costs by 40%. Additionally, Amazon EMR 6.x releases […]
Many AWS customers use Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) in order to take advantage of Kubernetes without the burden of managing the Kubernetes control plane. With Kubernetes, you can centrally manage your workloads and offer administrators a multi-tenant environment where they can create, update, scale, and secure workloads using a single API. Kubernetes also […]
