Covid-19 Analysis with BigData Applications – Part 3

Covid-19 Analysis with BigData Applications – Part 3

Hi there! If you’ve been following these blog series, we are looking at a BigData project to analyze Covid-19 data. So far, we have looked at the overall architecture and ETL Spark jobs. In this post, let’s look the scheduler component (Lambda function) in this workflow. The main reason I’m using Lambda here is due to its serverless nature and native integration with other AWS services. For example, we could trigger it via a CloudWatch scheduled rule in regular basis…

Hi again! So, if you came here after reading the introduction post, we’ll be talking about the part that we run on EMR cluster i.e. ETL job. Across BigData community, the term ETL generally refers to Extract, Transform and Load. And for this project, I’m using Apache Spark, which happens to be one of the most popular open-source projects currently. Data Ingestion Setup Since we’ll be running multiple ETL jobs for this project, I’ll mostly focus on the first one…
