A Look at Netflix’s Petabyte Scale Data Platform
At Netflix we are using various open source technologies to power our petabyte scale data platform running on the Amazon cloud. In particular, we are using Pig for ETL, Hive for large analytics workloads, Presto for ad-hoc and interactive queries, and recently Spark for iterative computations and other analytics tasks. In this session I am going to talk about the details of our data platform including its architecture, the technologies behind it, and how everything fits together.
Hope to see you at Voxxed Days Istanbul 2016.
