8 Ways to Optimize AWS Glue Jobs in a Nutshell

Image
  Improving the performance of AWS Glue jobs involves several strategies that target different aspects of the ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) process. Here are some key practices. 1. Optimize Job Scripts Partitioning : Ensure your data is properly partitioned. Partitioning divides your data into manageable chunks, allowing parallel processing and reducing the amount of data scanned. Filtering : Apply pushdown predicates to filter data early in the ETL process, reducing the amount of data processed downstream. Compression : Use compressed file formats (e.g., Parquet, ORC) for your data sources and sinks. These formats not only reduce storage costs but also improve I/O performance. Optimize Transformations : Minimize the number of transformations and actions in your script. Combine transformations where possible and use DataFrame APIs which are optimized for performance. 2. Use Appropriate Data Formats Parquet and ORC : These columnar formats are efficient for storage and querying, signif

Hadoop Vs RDBMS Real Differences

Hadoop comes into the picture to process a large volume of unstructured data. The structured data is already taken care of by traditional databases.

Hadoop unstructured data

Traditional databases.

  • Traditional relational databases have been able to store massive data sets for a long time. An Oracle 10g database can store over 8 Petabytes while for many years DB2 databases have been capable of storing well over 500 Petabytes. Of course, this is all theoretical. 
  • No customer has an Oracle or DB2 database that approaches sizes even close to that. Why? Because the speed, or velocity, at which data can be loaded and queries can be executed approaches zero well before then. Similarly, all traditional relational databases can store any variety of data as text or binary large objects. The problem is that large volumes of unstructured data cannot be moved fast enough to enable rapid search and retrieval.

Hadoop Processing.

  1. Running constant and predictable workloads is what your existing data warehouse has been all about. And as a solution for meeting the demands of structured data—data that can be entered, stored, queried, and analyzed in a simple and straightforward manner—the data warehouse will continue to be a viable solution. Storing, managing, and analyzing massive volumes of semi-structured and unstructured data is what Hadoop was purpose-built to do.
  2. Unlike structured data, found within the tidy confines of records, spreadsheets, and files, semi-structured and unstructured data is raw, complex, and pours in from multiple sources such as emails, text documents, videos, photos, social media posts, Twitter feeds, sensors and clickstreams.
  3. Hadoop and MapReduce enable organizations to distribute the search simultaneously across many machines, reducing the time to find relevant nuggets of information in large volumes of data in a scalable way. That’s why Hadoop is being adopted by bleeding-edge enterprises moving into the multi-petabyte club. There are already some environments that break the 100 Petabyte level and theoretically can continue to scale.
