Programming Elastic Mapreduce: Using Aws Services to Build an End-To-End Applicationby Kevin Schmidt
Synopses & Reviews
Although you dont need a large computing infrastructure to process massive amounts of data with Apache Hadoop, it can still be difficult to get started. This practical guide shows you how to quickly launch data analysis projects in the cloud by using Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR), the hosted Hadoop framework in Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Authors Kevin Schmidt and Christopher Phillips demonstrate best practices for using EMR and various AWS and Apache technologies by walking you through the construction of a sample MapReduce log analysis application. Using code samples and example configurations, youll learn how to assemble the building blocks necessary to solve your biggest data analysis problems.
Amazon now brings the power of Hadoop to the cloud and this book helps you take advantage of it. Youll learn how to move your data to the cloud and analyze datasets utilizing a combination of Amazon EC2, S3, and JobFlows in Amazon EMR. Unlock the power of processing large volumes of data and only pay for what you use with Amazon MapReduce services. Programming Elastic MapReduce gets you started.
