8 Ways to Optimize AWS Glue Jobs in a Nutshell

  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

Here's to Know Data lake Vs Database

In a data lake, data stored internally in a repository. You can call it a blob. The data in the lake a no-format data, but you need a schema for the database.  Data lake Repository Database In the database, the Schema definition you need before you store data on it. It should follow Codd's rules. Here data is completely formatted. The data stores here in Tables, so you need SQL language to read the records. Poor performance in terms of scalability. Data lake It doesn't have any format - it's just a dump. You can send this dump to the Hadoop repository for data analysis. This repository can be incremental. You can build a database. The data lake is a dump of data with no format. It needs a pre-format before it sends for analytics. Data security and encryption: You need these before you send data to Hadoop. In real-time, you need to pre-process data. This data you need to send to the data warehouse to get insights.
