DevOps AWS Big Data (Java)

DevOps AWS Big Data (Java)

World’s Most Comprehensive Cross-Device Identity big data on Businesses, Consumers and Geo Audiences. When the number of records counts hundreds of billions and datasets are terabytes on dozens of instances, every optimization counts — either performance, or cost, or disk space, or stability & backups — everything is critical.

    e) Write bash scripts and automate infrastructure routine actions
    f) Use (where possible) Infrastructure as a Code tools (AWS Cloud Formation, Terraform, etc.)
    g) Set up and maintain CI/CD tools (Jenkins, etc)

  • AWS accounts cost optimization:
    a) Always think how to solve the task in the most cost-efficient way.
    b) Propose actions to reduce infrastructure cost for existing accounts and implement them once it’s approved
    c) Follow all new AWS product announcements and suggest improvements to projects’ infrastructures
    d) Study AWS products and related technologies (monitoring tools, log analysis tools, databases, etc) to be able to help the team with configuration and improvements
    e) Monitor and keep tracking on abnormal cost spikes to answer the question why it happened and what could be done to avoid that in future

  • Communicate with the client:
