Product Description

Product Description

Big data—data sets that are too large to store in a traditional relational database and that require distributed applications for processing—can be expensive and complicated to manage. Moving your data to the cloud can reduce storage and analysis costs and simplify administration. This guide explains how to use Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) to store big data, Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) instances (virtual servers) to process it, and Amazon Elastic MapReduce to manage the details of storage, cluster configuration, monitoring, and analysis.

2.0 out of 5 stars Would be great, if it really got you started - but it doesn't March 18 2013

The "Getting Started Guide" starts off with great promise, but disappoints when the tutorial fails to work. When you google the problem, there are many people having the same problem (but no solutions, sadly). After spending 3 or 4 hours on a tutorial which claims to be a one hour tutorial, I am completely stumped. The tutorial is also dated, and the GUI elements on production AWS are not the same as described in the book.

The idea is great, but Amazon really ought to watch a user go through the painful process of trying to get this to work..

This is a very basic review of the way big data works with AWS - mostly a high level view for non-technical folks.

If you know what hadoop and MapReduce are about and want to make it work on Amazon's services, this guide will get you moving in the right direction.

Put simply, it is exactly as I expected.

If you want the theory behind what you're entering in the console, grab this one for later and search for the theory books.

The authors define 'big data' is data sets too large to be hosted in traditional relational databases and inefficient to analyze using nondistributed applications. The intent is to explain how Amazon Web Services (AWS) helps manage these large data sets, using web server logs as an example. AWS allows one to use distributed applications without maintaining an expensive array of processors.

The specific detailed example used assumes one wants to analyze web logs to discover how people find your site - especially which of your online ad campaigns are most successful in driving traffic to your online store. To proceed, one has to sign up for the service and pay the cost of computer support - about 29 cents for an hour.
