Apache Spark and Apache Flink are two typical Big Data analytics frameworks. Their APIs allow the development and testing of an application on a local workstation and later, without changing the source code of the application, distribute work to many computers when the local workstation is not sufficient anymore due to limited resources.
The course focuses on the step from a local workstation to an HPC environment and presents how the typical Big Data analysis workflow can be organized in an HPC environment. In this course participants will be introduced to running a data pipeline and data processing along with managing the configurations on the HPC environment, using Apache Flink and Apache Spark.
Title: Big Data Processing on HPC
Next Session: 08.12.2022, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Target Group: Users who have a Big Data problem
Format: Tutorial, online
- Introduction and access to the ZIH HPC system
- Considerations about the hardware environment
- Setup of the required software environment
- Distributed computing with Big Data frameworks
- Efficient configuration of Big Data frameworks
- Hands-on session
The course material (slides, sample application) will be available.
It is recommended, that participants have basic knowledge of Big Data frameworks (e.g. Apache Flink, Apache Spark). Furthermore, basic HPC knowledge would be helpful, but is not required.
Participants will be able to start and configure a Big Data cluster and run their own applications on HPC.
