Deploying Spark ML Pipelines in Production on AWS

Video Description

Translating a Spark application from running in a local environment to running on a production cluster in the cloud requires several critical steps, including publishing artifacts, installing dependencies, and defining the steps in a pipeline. This video is a hands-on guide through the process of deploying your Spark ML pipelines in production. You’ll learn how to create a pipeline that supports model reproducibility—making your machine learning models more reliable—and how to update your pipeline incrementally as the underlying data change. Learners should have basic familiarity with the following: Scala or Python; Hadoop, Spark, or Pandas; SBT or Maven; Amazon Web Services such as S3, EMR, and EC2; Bash, Docker, and REST.

  • Understand how various cloud ecosystem components interact (i.e., Amazon S3, EMR, EC2, and so on)
  • Learn how to architect the components of a cloud ecosystem into an end-to-end model pipeline
  • Explore the capabilities and limitations of Spark in building an end-to-end model pipeline
  • Learn to write, publish, deploy, and schedule an ETL process using Spark on AWS using EMR
  • Understand how to create a pipeline that supports model reproducibility and reliability
