  • Delivering Self-Service Analytics and Discovery from your Data Lake
    Delivering Self-Service Analytics and Discovery from your Data Lake
    Jorge Villamariona, Qubole Recorded: Dec 13 2018 31 mins
    As corporations augment their corporate data warehouses and data marts with cloud data lakes in order to support new big data requirements, the question about how to grant governed access to those data lakes becomes more pressing. Certainly, capturing new and different types of data is important but deriving value from those datasets remains the ultimate goal.

    Whether or not the data lake consumers write SQL or leverage 3rd party BI and visualization tools, what matters is that they can continue to be productive using the skills and tools they already know. The difference is that now those tools and skills should be used with back-end engines that can can help them quickly sift through petabytes of data and at the same time provide support for fast interactive queries.

    This means that in order for those data lake investments to succeed it is important for data admins to provide: SQL access to all authorized data, support for BI tools, cross-team collaboration capabilities, and governed self-service.

    In this webinar we will cover:
    - Data collaboration and access using SQL
    - Tools that enable fast self-service for different teams
    - Considerations for choosing the right SQL back-end for your use case

  • Keeping Costs Under Control When Processing Big Data in the Cloud
    Keeping Costs Under Control When Processing Big Data in the Cloud
    Amit Duvedi and Balaji Mohanam, Qubole Recorded: Nov 13 2018 48 mins
    The biggest mistake businesses make when spending on data processing services in the cloud is in assuming that cloud will lower their overall cost. While the cloud has the potential to offer better economics both in the short and long-term, the bursty nature of big data processing requires following cloud engineering best practices, such as upscaling and downscaling infrastructure and leveraging the spot market for best pricing, to realize such economics.

    Businesses also fail to appreciate the potential of runaway costs in a 100% variable cost environment, something they rarely have to worry about in a fixed cost on-premise environment. In the absence of financial governance, companies leave themselves vulnerable to cost overruns where even a single rogue query can result in tens of thousands of dollars in unbudgeted spend.

    In this webinar you’ll learn how to:

    - Identify areas of cost optimization to drive maximum performance for the lowest TCO
    - Monitor total costs at the application, user, and account level
    - Provide admins the ability to control and design the infrastructure spend
    - Automatically optimize clusters for lower infrastructure spend based on custom-defined parameters

  • Modern Data Engineering and The Rise of Apache Airflow
    Modern Data Engineering and The Rise of Apache Airflow
    Prateek Shrivastava, Principal Product Manager, Qubole Recorded: Sep 11 2018 48 mins
    Storage and compute are cheaper than ever. As a result, data engineering is undergoing a generational shift and is no longer defined by star-schema modeling techniques on data warehouses. Further, downstream operations are not just BI reporting and now include emerging use-cases such as data science. This means that modern day ETL tools should be dynamic, scalable, and extensible enough to handle complex business logic.

    Airflow provides that level of abstraction today’s Data Engineers need. The Qubole Data Platform provides single-click deployment of Apache Airflow, automates cluster and configuration management, and includes dashboards to visualize the Airflow Directed Acyclic Graphs (DAGs).

    In this webinar we will cover:
    - A brief Introduction to Apache Airflow and its optimal use cases
    - How to remove the complexity of spinning up and managing the Airflow cluster
    - How to Scale out horizontally with multi-node Airflow cluster

  • Deep Learning with TensorFlow on Qubole
    Deep Learning with TensorFlow on Qubole
    Piero Cinquegrana, Sr. Data Science Product Manager, Qubole Recorded: Sep 4 2018 43 mins
    Deep learning works on large volumes of unstructured data such as human speech, text, and images to enable powerful use cases such as speech-to-text transcription, voice identification, image classification, facial or object recognition, analysis of sentiment or intent from text, and many more. In the last few years, TensorFlow has become a very popular deep learning framework for image recognition and speech detection use cases.

    All deep learning methods, including TensorFlow, require large volumes of data to train the model. Today, the most significant challenge in deep learning is the ever-increasing training time — as models get more complicated, the size of training data continues to increase. In order to address this challenge, cloud providers have launched instance types with many graphics processing units (GPUs) in a single node. However, using all of the GPUs in a single training job is not trivial. Qubole’s TensorFlow engine has been built to run on distributed Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) on Amazon Web Services.

    In this webinar we will:

    - Discuss how Qubole has achieved single-node, multi-GPU parallelization using native Tensorflow and Keras with Tensorflow as a backend.
    - Present results from our studies that show how training time varies with the number of GPUs in the cluster.
    - Run through a demo of a TensorFlow use case on Qubole.
