Build Value with Hadoop & Spark on Amazon EMR

Users were able to dramatically increase the number of useful applications, increase capacity, realize better performance, and reduce staff time required for routine operations, all while realizing considerable cost savings."


The Economic Benefits of Migrating Apache Spark & Hadoop to Amazon EMR

Apache open-source projects like Hadoop & Spark have accelerated insights collection by automating the storage, processing, and accessing of big data. IDC studied nine companies that leveraged Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR) to run big data frameworks at scale and found that on average, they lowered total cost of ownership by 57% and experienced a 99% reduction in unplanned downtime.

In this whitepaper, IDC explores the business impact of Amazon EMR with impressive results, including an average 342% five-year ROI. Download the whitepaper to learn more about how customers use Amazon EMR to generate value by:

  • Deploying a flexible, elastic, and scalable cloud environment to reducing physical infrastructure costs.
  • Driving higher IT staff productivity among teams that need to manage and support these environments.
  • Providing stronger big data environment availability which enables better productivity among end users.

Amazon EMR

Migrate to a managed Hadoop framework that makes it easy, fast, and cost-effective to process vast amounts of data across dynamically scalable Amazon EC2 instances. You can also run other distributed frameworks like Apache Spark, HBase, Presto, and Flink in EMR, and interact with data in other AWS data stores such as Amazon S3 and Amazon DynamoDB. EMR Notebooks, based on Jupyter Notebook, provide a development and collaboration environment for ad hoc querying and exploratory analysis.
