Data Lake Development with Big Data

By: Pradeep Pasupuleti, Beulah Salome Purra

Overview of this book

A Data Lake is a highly scalable platform for storing huge volumes of multistructured data from disparate sources with centralized data management services. This book explores the potential of Data Lakes and explores architectural approaches to building data lakes that ingest, index, manage, and analyze massive amounts of data using batch and real-time processing frameworks. It guides you on how to go about building a Data Lake that is managed by Hadoop and accessed as required by other Big Data applications. This book will guide readers (using best practices) in developing Data Lake's capabilities. It will focus on architect data governance, security, data quality, data lineage tracking, metadata management, and semantic data tagging. By the end of this book, you will have a good understanding of building a Data Lake for Big Data.

Chapter 2. Data Intake

In the preceding chapter, you understood the need for Data Lake and gained a high-level understanding of the key components that can comprise a Data Lake and how important each of these components are for building it. We have seen how the changing business landscape is provoking data growth and how organizations are adopting a newer paradigm such as Data Lake to ingest this data and extract analytical value.

In this chapter, you will understand in detail, the Intake Tier that was introduced in Chapter 1, The Need for Data Lake. The following topics will be covered in this chapter:

  • The process of obtaining data into the Data Lake's Intake Tier

  • An high-level overview of the various External Data Sources from which the data can be acquired, and the variety of data that can be ingested

  • The key functionalities that can be implemented as part of the Data Intake Tier

  • The various data intake modes

  • Big Data tools and technologies that can be used to acquire a variety of data from...
