Presentation: "Resilient Predictive Data Pipelines"

Time: Wednesday 17:10 - 18:00 / Location: Grand Ballroom A & B

Big Data companies (e.g. LinkedIn, Facebook, Google, and Twitter) have historically built custom data pipelines over bare metal in custom-designed data centers. In order to meet strict requirements on data security, fault-tolerance, cost control, job scalability, and uptime, they need to closely manage their core technology. Like serving systems (e.g. web application servers and OLTP databases) that need to be up 24x7 to display content to users, data pipelines need to be up and running in order to pick the most engaging and up-to-date content to display. In other words, updated ranking models, new content recommendations, and the like are what make data pipelines an integral part of an end user’s web experience. We call these predictive data pipelines since their output is source data marked with ranking or classification data. At the heart of these systems lies Airflow, Airbnb’s thriving open-source workflow scheduler. Come to this talk to learn how Agari leverages Airflow and other best practices from both Cloud (AWS SNS, SQS, Kinesis, Auto-Scaling, S3, Lambda, etc...) and Big Data (Spark, Airflow, Avro, etc...) to build its fault-tolerant predictive data pipeline.
