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

6 Exclusive Differences Between Structured and Unstructured data

Here's a basic interview question for Big data engineers. Why it's basic means many Bachelor degrees now offering courses on Big data, as a beginner, understanding of data is a little tricky. So interviewers stress this point. Don't worry, I made it simplified. So you get a clear concept. I share here a total of six differences between these. In today's world, we have a lot of data. That data is the unstructured format.   Structured Data The major data format is text, which can be string or numeric. The date is also supported. The data model is fixed before inserting the data. Data is stored in the form of a table, making it easy to search. Not easy to scale. Version is maintained as a column in the table. Transaction management and concurrency are easy to support. Unstructured data The data format can be anything from text to images, audio to videos. The data model cannot be fixed since the nature of the data can change. Consider a tweet message that could be text foll
