Apache Hadoop is rapidly moving from its batch processing roots to a more flexible platform supporting both batch and streaming workloads. Rapid advancements in the Hadoop ecosystem are causing a dramatic evolution in both the storage and processing capabilities of the Hadoop platform. These advancements include projects like:
While these advancements to the Hadoop platform are exciting, they also add a new array of tools that architects and developers need to understand when architecting solutions with Hadoop.
Using Entity 360 as an example, Jonathan Seidman, Ted Malaska, Mark Grover, and Gwen Shapira explain how to architect a modern, real-time big data platform leveraging recent advancements in the open source software world, using components like Kafka, Impala, Kudu, Spark Streaming, and Spark SQL with Hadoop to enable new forms of data processing and analytics. Along the way, they discuss considerations and best practices for utilizing these components to implement solutions, cover common challenges and how to address them, and provide practical advice for building your own modern, real-time big data architectures.
Jonathan Seidman is a software engineer on the partner engineering team at Cloudera. Previously, he was a lead engineer on the big data team at Orbitz Worldwide, helping to build out the Hadoop clusters supporting the data storage and analysis needs of one of the most heavily trafficked sites on the internet. Jonathan is a cofounder of the Chicago Hadoop User Group and the Chicago Big Data meetup and a frequent speaker on Hadoop and big data at industry conferences such as Hadoop World, Strata, and OSCON. Jonathan is the coauthor of Hadoop Application Architectures from O’Reilly.
Ted Malaska is a group technical architect on the Battle.net team at Blizzard, helping support great titles like World of Warcraft, Overwatch, and HearthStone. Previously, Ted was a principal solutions architect at Cloudera, helping clients find success with the Hadoop ecosystem, and a lead architect at the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). He has also contributed code to Apache Flume, Apache Avro, Apache Yarn, Apache HDFS, Apache Spark, Apache Sqoop, and many more. Ted is a coauthor of Hadoop Application Architectures, a frequent speaker at many conferences, and a frequent blogger on data architectures.
Mark Grover is a product manager at Lyft. Mark is a committer on Apache Bigtop, a committer and PPMC member on Apache Spot (incubating), and a committer and PMC member on Apache Sentry. He has also contributed to a number of open source projects, including Apache Hadoop, Apache Hive, Apache Sqoop, and Apache Flume. He is a coauthor of Hadoop Application Architectures and wrote a section in Programming Hive. Mark is a sought-after speaker on topics related to big data. He occasionally blogs on topics related to technology.
Gwen Shapira is a system architect at Confluent, where she specializes in building and helping customers implement real-time reliable data-processing pipelines using Apache Kafka. She has 15 years of experience working with code and customers to build scalable data architectures, integrating relational and big data technologies. Gwen is an Oracle Ace Director, the coauthor of Hadoop Application Architectures, and a frequent presenter at industry conferences. She is also a committer on Apache Kafka and Apache Sqoop. When Gwen isn’t coding or building data pipelines, you can find her pedaling her bike, exploring the roads and trails of California and beyond.
