Building a Serverless Data Lake on AWS is a one-day, advanced-level bootcamp designed to teach you how to design, build, and operate a serverless data lake solution with AWS services. The bootcamp will include topics such as ingesting data from any data source at large scale, storing the data securely and durably, enabling the capability to use the right tool to process large volumes of data, and understanding the options available for analyzing the data in near-real time.
This course is intended for:
- Solutions architects
- Big Data developers
- Data architects and analysts
- Other hands-on data analysis team members
This course is delivered through a mix of:
- Instructor-Led Training ILT
- Hands-On Labs
This course teaches you how to:
- Collect large amounts of data using services such as Kinesis Streams and Firehose and store the data durably and securely in Amazon Simple Storage Service.
- Create a metadata index of your data lake.
- Choose the best tools for ingesting, storing, processing, and analyzing your data in the lake.
- Apply the knowledge to hands-on labs that provide practical experience with building an end-to-end solution.
This course covers the following concepts:
- Key services that help enable a serverless data lake architecture
- A data analytics solution that follows the ingest, store, process, and analyze workflow
- Repeatable template deployment for implementing a data lake solution
- Building a metadata index and enabling search capability
- Setup of a large scale data ingestion pipeline from multiple data sources
- Transformation of data with simple functions that are event-triggered
- Data processing by choosing the best tools and services for the use case
- Options available to better analyze the processed data
- Best practices for deployment and operations
We recommend that attendees of this course have the following prerequisites:
- Good working knowledge of AWS core services, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud EC2 and Amazon Simple Storage Service S3
- Some experience working with a programming or scripting language
- Familiarity with the Linux operating system and command line interface
- Requires a laptop to complete lab exercises – tablets are not appropriate
