What you'll learn

  • Understand the taxonomy of big data systems in the Hadoop ecosystem so that you can decide on the right system to use for a specific task when building solutions over these stacks
  • Description

    Operational data stores (ODS) serve as a data staging area between transactional databases and data warehouses. Data from multiple sources are integrated, cleansed, and prepped in the ODS before populating a data warehouse for long-term storage and analytics. Traditional ODS systems encounter severe challenges when it comes to dealing with the wide variety and massive volume of data common to data warehouses built on top of the Hadoop platform. It’s time to rethink the requirements and the architecture for the next generation of an ODS on top of Hadoop. Starting from first principles, Vinayak Borkar defines the requirements for a modern operational data store and explores some possible architectures to support those requirements.
