  • How do you implement CDC in your organization
    Imo if you are using the cloud and not doing anything particularly fancy the native tooling is good enough. For AWS that is DMS (for RDBMS) and Kinesis/Lamba (for streams). Google has Data Fusion and Dataflow . Azure hasData Factory if you are unfortunate enough to have to use SQL Server or Azure. Imo the vendored tools and open source tools are more useful when you need to ingest data from SaaS platforms, and... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Here’s a playlist of 7 hours of music I use to focus when I’m coding/developing. Post yours as well if you also have one!
    This sub is for Apache Beam and Google Cloud Dataflow as the sidebar suggests. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • How are view/listen counts rolled up on something like Spotify/YouTube?
    I am pretty sure they are using pub/sub with probably a Dataflow pipeline to process all that data. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Best way to export several GCP datasets to AWS?
    You can run a Dataflow job that copies the data directly from BQ into S3, though you'll have to run a job per table. This can be somewhat expensive to do. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Why we don’t use Spark
    It was clear we needed something that was built specifically for our big-data SaaS requirements. Dataflow was our first idea, as the service is fully managed, highly scalable, fairly reliable and has a unified model for streaming & batch workloads. Sadly, the cost of this service was quite large. Secondly, at that moment in time, the service only accepted Java implementations, of which we had little knowledge... - Source: / about 2 years ago

  • Composer out of resources - "INFO Task exited with return code Negsignal.SIGKILL"
    What you are looking for is Dataflow. It can be a bit tricky to wrap your head around at first, but I highly suggest leaning into this technology for most of your data engineering needs. It's based on the open source Apache Beam framework that originated at Google. We use an internal version of this system at Google for virtually all of our pipeline tasks, from a few GB, to Exabyte scale systems -- it can do it all. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Pub/Sub parallel processing best practices
    The go-to recommendation is to use Dataflow to write your pipeline instead of disjoint functions. You can do something like this:. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Data processing issue
    With that, the best way to maximize processing and minimize time is to use Dataflow or Dataproc depending on your needs. These systems are highly parallel and clustered, which allows for much larger processing pipelines that execute quickly. Source: over 2 years ago

  • Noob question: Data Factory, but Google cloud?
    I'm not 100% sure, but perhaps Google Cloud Dataflow is similar to Azure Data Factory. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Best Practices to Become a Data Engineer
    Apache Beam - Apache Beam is a scalable framework that allows you to implement batch and streaming data processing jobs. It is a framework that you can use in order to create a data pipeline on Google Cloud or on Amazon Web Services. - Source: / about 3 years ago
  • Ecosystem: Haskell vs JVM (Eta, Frege)
    Dataflow is Google's implementation of a runner for Apache Beam jobs in Google cloud. Right now, python and java are pretty much the only two options supported for writing Beam jobs that run on Dataflow. Source: over 3 years ago

Top 8 Apache Airflow Alternatives in 2024
Google Cloud Dataflow is highly focused on real-time streaming data and batch data processing from web resources, IoT devices, etc. Data gets cleansed and filtered as Dataflow implements Apache Beam to simplify large-scale data processing. Such prepared data is ready for analysis for Google BigQuery or other analytics tools for prediction, personalization, and other purposes.
