This webinar recording will explain how to get started with Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR). EMR enables fast processing of large structured or unstructured datasets, and in this webinar we'll demonstrated how to setup an EMR job flow to analyse application logs, and perform Hive queries against it. We'll review best practices around data file organisation on Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), how clusters can be started from the AWS web console and command line, and how to monitor the status of a Map/Reduce job. The security configuration that allows direct access to the Amazon EMR cluster in interactive mode will be shown, and we'll see how Hive provides a SQL like environment, while allowing you to dynamically grow and shrink the amount of compute used for powerful data processing activities.
