Philly ETE 2017 #15 – Scio: Moving Big Data to Google Cloud, a Spotify Story – Neville Li

Tags: , , , , ,

We will talk about Spotify’s story of migrating our big data infrastructure to Google Cloud. Over the past year or so we moved away from maintaining our own 2500+ node Hadoop cluster to managed services in the cloud. We replaced two key components in our data processing stack, Hive and Scalding, with BigQuery and Scio and are able to iterate at a much faster speed. We will focus the technical aspect of Scio, a Scala API for Apache Beam and Google Cloud Dataflow and how it changed the way we process data.
