Choosing technologies for a big data solution in the cloud


Published on

Has your company been building data warehouses for years using SQL Server? And are you now tasked with creating or moving your data warehouse to the cloud and modernizing it to support “Big Data”? What technologies and tools should use? That is what this presentation will help you answer. First we will cover what questions to ask concerning data (type, size, frequency), reporting, performance needs, on-prem vs cloud, staff technology skills, OSS requirements, cost, and MDM needs. Then we will show you common big data architecture solutions and help you to answer questions such as: Where do I store the data? Should I use a data lake? Do I still need a cube? What about Hadoop/NoSQL? Do I need the power of MPP? Should I build a "logical data warehouse"? What is this lambda architecture? Can I use Hadoop for my DW? Finally, we’ll show some architectures of real-world customer big data solutions. Come to this session to get started down the path to making the proper technology choices in moving to the cloud.

  4. 4. Material from many presentations Presentations (mine):  Relational databases vs Non-relational databases  Should I move my database to the cloud?  Big data architectures and the data lake  Introducing Azure SQL Database  Introducing Azure SQL Data Warehouse  Introduction to DocumentDB  Building an Effective Data Warehouse Architecture  Building a Big Data Solution  How does Microsoft solve Big Data?  Introduction to PolyBase
  5. 5. Considering Data Types Audio, video, images. Meaningless without adding some structure Unstructured JSON, XML, sensor data, social media, device data, web logs. Flexible data model structure Semi-Structured Structured CSV, Columnar Storage (Parquet, ORC). Strict data model structure Relational databases (RDBMS) work with structured data. Non-relational databases (NoSQL) work with semi-structured data Relational data and non-relational data are data models, describing how data is organized. Structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data are data types
  6. 6. Big Data = All Data! What is Big Data? • Variety: It can be structured, semi-structured, or unstructured • Velocity: It can be streaming, near real-time or batch • Volume: It can be 1GB or 1PB • Big data is the new currency
  7. 7. Any BI tool Advanced Analytics Any languageBig Data processing Data warehousing Relational data Dashboards | Reporting Mobile BI | Cubes Machine Learning Stream analytics | Cognitive | AI .NET | Java | R | Python Ruby | PHP | Scala Non-relational data Datavirtualization OLTP ERP CRM LOB The Data Management Platform for Analytics Social media DevicesWeb Media On-premises Cloud
  8. 8. Benefits of the cloud Agility • Unlimited elastic scale • Pay for what you need Innovation • Quick “Time to market” • Fail fast Risk • Availability • Reliability • Security Total cost of ownership calculator:

  16. 16. SMP vs MPP • Uses many separate CPUs running in parallel to execute a single program • Shared Nothing: Each CPU has its own memory and disk (scale-out) • Segments communicate using high-speed network between nodes MPP - Massively Parallel Processing • Multiple CPUs used to complete individual processes simultaneously • All CPUs share the same memory, disks, and network controllers (scale-up) • All SQL Server implementations up until now have been SMP • Mostly, the solution is housed on a shared SAN SMP - Symmetric Multiprocessing

Microsoft Big Data Portfolio SQL Server Stretch Business intelligence Machine learning analytics Insights Azure SQL Database SQL Server 2016 SQL Server 2016 Fast Track Azure SQL DW ADLS & ADLA Cosmos DB HDInsight Hadoop Analytics Platform System Sequential Scale Out + AcrossScale Up Key Relational Non-relational On-premisesCloud Microsoft has solutions covering and connecting all four quadrants – that’s why SQL Server is one of the most utilized databases in the world
  22. 22. Azure SQL Data Warehouse A relational data warehouse-as-a-service, fully managed by Microsoft. Industries first elastic cloud data warehouse with enterprise-grade capabilities. Support your smallest to your largest data storage needs while handling queries up to 100x faster.
  23. 23. Azure Data Lake Store A hyper-scale repository for Big Data analytics workloads Hadoop File System (HDFS) for the cloud No limits to scale Store any data in its native format Enterprise-grade access control, encryption at rest Optimized for analytic workload performance
  24. 24. Data lake is the center of a big data solution A storage repository, usually Hadoop, that holds a vast amount of raw data in its native format until it is needed. • Inexpensively store unlimited data • Collect all data “just in case” • Store data with no modeling – “Schema on read” • Complements EDW • Frees up expensive EDW resources • Quick user access to data • ETL Hadoop tools • Easily scalable • With Hadoop, high availability built in
  25. 25. Data Lake Transformation (ELT not ETL) New Approaches All data sources are considered Leverages the power of on-prem technologies and the cloud for storage and capture Native formats, streaming data, big data Extract and load, no/minimal transform Storage of data in near-native format Orchestration becomes possible Streaming data accommodation becomes possible Refineries transform data on read Produce curated data sets to integrate with traditional warehouses Users discover published data sets/services using familiar tools CRMERPOLTP LOB DATA SOURCES FUTURE DATA SOURCESNON-RELATIONAL DATA EXTRACT AND LOAD DATA LAKE DATA REFINERY PROCESS (TRANSFORM ON READ) Transform relevant data into data sets BI AND ANALYTCIS Discover and consume predictive analytics, data sets and other reports DATA WAREHOUSE Star schemas, views other read- optimized structures
  26. 26. Data Analysis Paradigm Shift OLD WAY: Structure -> Ingest -> Analyze NEW WAY: Ingest -> Analyze -> Structure This solves the two biggest reasons why may EDW projects fail: • Too much time spent modeling when you don’t know all of the questions your data needs to answer • Wasted time spent on ETL where the net effect is a star schema that doesn’t actually show value
  27. 27. Data Lake layers • Raw data layer– Raw events are stored for historical reference. Also called staging layer or landing area • Cleansed data layer – Raw events are transformed (cleaned and mastered) into directly consumable data sets. Aim is to uniform the way files are stored in terms of encoding, format, data types and content (i.e. strings). Also called conformed layer • Application data layer – Business logic is applied to the cleansed data to produce data ready to be consumed by applications (i.e. DW application, advanced analysis process, etc). Also called workspace layer or trusted layer or presentation layer Still need data governance so your data lake does not turn into a data swamp!
  28. 28. Azure HDInsight Hadoop and Spark as a Service on Azure Fully-managed Hadoop and Spark for the cloud 100% Open Source Hortonworks data platform Clusters up and running in minutes Managed, monitored and supported by Microsoft with the industry’s best SLA Familiar BI tools for analysis, or open source notebooks for interactive data science 63% lower TCO than deploy your own Hadoop on-premises* *IDC study “The Business Value and TCO Advantage of Apache Hadoop in the Cloud with Microsoft Azure HDInsight”
  29. 29. Azure Data Lake Analytics A new distributed analytics service Distributed analytics service built on Apache YARN Elastic scale per query lets users focus on business goals—not configuring hardware Includes U-SQL—a language that unifies the benefits of SQL with the expressive power of C# Integrates with Visual Studio to develop, debug, and tune code faster Federated query across Azure data sources Enterprise-grade role based access control
  30. 30. Query data where it lives Easily query data in multiple Azure data stores without moving it to a single store Benefits • Avoid moving large amounts of data across the network between stores (federated query/logical data warehouse) • Single view of data irrespective of physical location • Minimize data proliferation issues caused by maintaining multiple copies • Single query language for all data • Each data store maintains its own sovereignty • Design choices based on the need • Push SQL expressions to remote SQL sources • Filters, Joins • SELECT * FROM EXTERNAL MyDataSource EXECUTE @”Select CustName from Customers WHERE ID=1”; (not pushdown) • SELECT CustName FROM EXTERNAL MyDataSource WHERE ID=1 LOCATION “dbo.Customers” (pushdown) U-SQL Query Query Azure Storage Blobs Azure SQL in VMs Azure SQL DB Azure Data Lake Analytics Azure SQL Data Warehouse Azure Data Lake Storage
  31. 31. PolyBase Query relational and non-relational data with T-SQL By preview early this year PolyBase will add support for Teradata, Oracle, SQL Server, MongoDB, and generic ODBC (Spark, Hive, Impala, DB2) Vs U-SQL: PolyBase is interactive while U-SQL is batch. U-SQL more code to query data but more formats (JSON) and libraries/UDOs and supports writes to blob/ADLS
  32. 32. PolyBase use cases
  33. 33. PolyBase Reality PolyBase in: Parallelize Data Load (Blob and ADLS) Federated Query (push down) HDInsights Federated Query (push down) HDP/Cloudera (local or blob) Federated Query (push down) New 5 Age Out Data SQL DW Yes N/A N/A No on-prem support Maybe SQL Server 2016 Yes via scale-out groups. Blob, not ALDS N Y (MapReduce job) Y Maybe Supports: UTF-8 and UTF-16 encoded delimited text, RC File, ORC, Parquet, gzip, zlib, Snappy. Not supported: extended ASCII, fixed-file format, WinZip, JSON, and XML. SQL DB not supported SQL DW now supports ADLS but not compute pushdown • ADLS in only two regions (East US 2, Central US) • SQL DW: Think of PolyBase as mechanism for data loading • SQL Server 2016: Think of PolyBase for federated querying • PolyBase supports row sizes up to 1MB • Writes only to blob/ADLS (using CETAS) • Requires External Table command PolyBase parallelized reads:  Supported: in SQL using CTAS or INSERT INTO  Not supported, BCP, Bulk Insert, SQLBulkCopy  Not supported: SSIS (unless used to call stored procedure containing CTAS)  Supported: ADF o If source compatible with PolyBase, will directly copy o If source not compatible, will stage to Blob o If source is ADLS, will still stage to Blob (to be fixed end February)
  34. 34. SSAS/Azure Analysis Services Cubes Reasons to report off cubes instead of the data warehouse:  Semantic layer  Handle many concurrent users  Aggregating data for performance  Multidimensional analysis  No joins or relationships  Hierarchies, KPI’s  Security  Advanced time-calculations  Slowly Changing Dimensions (SCD)  Required for some reporting tools
  35. 35. Azure Data Lake Store Azure Blob Storage Purpose Optimized for big data analytics General purpose bulk storage Use Cases Batch, Interactive, Streaming App backend, backup data, media storage for streaming Units of Storage Accounts / Folders / Files Accounts / Containers / Blobs Structure Hierarchical File System Flat namespace WebHDFS Implements WebHDFS No (WASB) Security AD SAS keys Storage Auto Shared/Files chunked Manually manage expansion/Files intact Size Limits No limits on account size, file size, # files 500TB account, 4.75TB file Service State Generally Available Generally Available Billing Pay for data stored and for I/O Pay for data stored and for I/O Region Availability Two US regions (Other regions coming soon) All Azure Regions ADL Store vs Blob Store
  36. 36. Want Hadoop? Need exact same on- prem Need interactive / streaming? Mandatory No strong opinion Azure Marketplace (IaaS) • Need all workloads exactly like on- premises • Need 100% Hortonworks/Cloudera/MapR Azure HDInsight • Most Hadoop workloads • Fully managed by Microsoft • Sell HDI + ADLS • Stickier to Microsoft than VMs • Can do interactive (Spark) and streaming (Storm/Spark) Azure Data Lake Analytics • Easiest experience for admin: no sense of clusters, instant scale per job • Easiest experience for developers: Visual Studio/U-SQL (C#+SQL) • Sell ADLA + ADLS • Batch workloads only Need everything exactly like on-prem Need core projects Yes Batch is OK Always present ADLA if .NET or Visual Studio Shop If .NET or VS shop?

  39. 39. Data Warehouse Future SQL DW • Replicated tables in private preview (it’s a cache) • 10PB max db size this summer SQL DB • 4TB in public preview (1TB now) • Project Cloud Lift, instance level, 35TB max db, true SQL Server compatibility (cross-database queries), private preview March CY17, public preview H2CY17; Socrates: 100TB max db VM • GS5: 32 cores, 448GB memory, 80k disk IOPS • Superdome X: 384 cores, 24TB memory, 92TB disk • Larger disks Q2CY17 (up to 4TB SSDs), so 256TB max database; 8TB end CY17, 32TB CY18 • New VM sizes with much more cores and memory on the way • SQL14/SQL16 have a feature called “Data Files in Azure Storage Blobs” that allows it to store its data/log files on as many Blobs as desired. This allows going above the VM storage limit. Writes are the same. Reads are slower (1ms to 5ms) given that there is no read cache
  40. 40. Data Lake Data Warehouse Complementary to DW Can be sourced from Data Lake Schema-on-read Schema-on-write Physical collection of uncurated data Data of common meaning System of Insight: Unknown data to do experimentation / data discovery System of Record: Well-understood data to do operational reporting Any type of data Limited set of data types (ie. relational) Skills are limited Skills mostly available All workloads – batch, interactive, streaming, machine learning Optimized for interactive querying
  41. 41. Roles when using both Data Lake and DW Data Lake/Hadoop (staging and processing environment) • Batch reporting • Data refinement/cleaning • ETL workloads • Store historical data • Sandbox for data exploration • One-time reports • Data scientist workloads • Quick results Data Warehouse/RDBMS (serving and compliance environment) • Low latency • High number of users • Additional security • Large support for tools • Easily create reports (Self-service BI) • A data lake is just a glorified file folder with data files in it – how many end-users can accurately create reports from it?
