All About and What is Big Data AWS?

Writer : Mis. Rossela Ilkan

The term "big data" refers to the increasing volume, velocity, and variety of data that traditional databases cannot handle. The term "big data" has many definitions, but the most common one is the "three V's" of big data: volume, variety, and velocity.

Volume: From terabytes to petabytes of data are available.

a wide range of data from various sources and formats (e.g. web logs, social media interactions, ecommerce and online transactions, financial transactions, etc)

The speed at which data is generated and actionable insights are delivered is becoming increasingly important to businesses. It is therefore imperative that the data collection and analysis process be carried out as quickly as possible, from daily to real-time.


Why AWS's Big Data AWS Is a Good Fit for You?

It's no secret that the hype surrounding big data has blinded many organizations to the fact that they actually do have a problem with it. Generally speaking, when an organization's existing databases and applications can no longer scale to support sudden increases in volume, variety and velocity of data, it is likely to benefit from big data technologies.

As the cost of big data challenges rises, so does the risk of losing productivity and competitiveness. On the other hand, a well-executed big data strategy can help organizations save money and increase operational efficiency by migrating heavy existing workloads to big data technologies and deploying new applications to take advantage of new opportunities.


AWS Big Data: What's the Process?

Data management and analysis can now be done in a more efficient and cost-effective manner with new tools that cover the entire data management cycle thanks to big data technologies. Most of the time, big data processing involves a common data flow – from the collection of raw data to the extraction of actionable insights.

Collect. When confronted with large amounts of data, many businesses must first collect the raw data, which can include everything from transactions to logs to mobile devices. With the right big data platform, ingesting a wide range of data types, from structured to unstructured, at any speed – from real-time to batch – is made easier, making this step less cumbersome.

Store. For any big data platform to be effective it must be able to store and process large amounts of data. Temporary data storage may also be required, depending on your specific needs.

Analyze and Process. Here, data is sorted, aggregated, joined, and even more advanced algorithms and functions are used to transform raw data into a consumable format. It is then possible to store and make available the resulting data sets through the use of business intelligence and data visualisation tools.

Eat and think about it. The goal of big data is to extract high-value, actionable insights from your organization's data resources. Self-service business intelligence and agile data visualization tools allow stakeholders to quickly and easily explore datasets. End-users can also consume the resulting data in the form of statistical "predictions" (in predictive analytics) or recommended actions (in prescriptive analytics), depending on the type of analytics.


Processors for Massive Quantitative Information

The evolution of the big data ecosystem continues at a rapid pace. A wide range of analytic methods are now available to support a variety of business functions.

"What happened, and why?" is a question that can be answered using descriptive analytics. Traditional Query and Reporting Environments with Scorecards and Dashboards are examples of this type of data visualization.

With predictive analytics, users can calculate the likelihood of a specific event occurring in the feature. Early warning systems, fraud detection, preventive maintenance applications, and forecasting are examples of this type of technology.

In prescriptive analytics, the user is given specific (prescriptive) advice. If "x" happens, they answer the question: What should I do next?

Prior to the advent of big data frameworks like Hadoop, processing large datasets en masse was limited to batch operations, which took hours or days to complete. New frameworks like Apache Spark, Apache Kafka, and Amazon Kinesis have been developed to support real-time and streaming data processing because of the "velocity" of big data.


At AWS, you can put your data to good use.

Big data applications can be built, secured, and deployed using Amazon Web Services' wide range of cloud computing services. Because you don't have to worry about purchasing or maintaining hardware or scaling an infrastructure with AWS, you can devote your time and energy to finding new insights. Make use of new capabilities and features that are constantly being rolled out.

Immediate Availability

Long setup and provisioning times are a common occurrence in many big data technologies. AWS allows you to quickly and easily deploy the infrastructure you need. Because of this, your teams will be more productive, and new ideas and projects will be easier to implement.

Broad & Deep Capabilities

There are as many different kinds of big data workloads as there are different kinds of data assets that need to be examined. There are no limits to what you can do with a broad and deep platform when it comes to building and deploying big data applications. AWS has everything you need to collect, store, process, analyze, and visualize big data in the cloud, with more than 50 services and hundreds of new features added each year. Learn more about Amazon Web Services' (AWS) large-scale data platform.

Trusted & Secure

Big data contains sensitive information. Keeping your infrastructure and data safe without sacrificing responsiveness is therefore critical. AWS has the ability to meet the most stringent requirements in terms of facilities, network, software, and business processes. In order to maintain certifications such as FedRAMP, DoD SRG, and PCI DSS, environments are constantly audited for compliance. Assurance programs help you demonstrate compliance with more than two dozen standards, including HIPAA, NCSC, and many others.. Learn more about cloud security by visiting the Cloud Security Center.

Hundreds of Partners & Solutions

Having a large network of partners can expedite the process of learning about big data and filling in the knowledge gap. Get help from an AWS consulting partner or choose from a wide range of tools and applications in the data management stack by visiting the AWS Partner Network.
