Drive Cloud Performance on Amazon EMR with Managed Autoscaling

While autoscaling provides the elasticity that customers require for their big data workloads, it can lead to exorbitant runaway waste and cost and management complexity. Estimating the right number of cluster nodes for a workload is difficult; user-initiated cluster scaling requires manual intervention, and mistakes are often costly and disruptive. Learn about the operational challenges associated with maintaining optimal big data performance in the cloud, what milestones to set, and recommendations on how to create a successful cloud migration framework.

Presto Performance Best Practices—Get Visibility Into Your Presto Queries

The complexity of managing cluster performance to meet business requirements and performance SLAs is complex. You want best-in-class performance to meet the short deadlines of interactive workloads while reducing and/or controlling costs. If a single query fails to complete because of query-level inefficiencies, data skew, missing or old statistics, or resource configurations—that single resource-consuming query can negatively impact the entire application stack on that cluster. Join Pepperdata Field Engineer Alex Pierce for this webinar on Presto performance management best practices.
