Eliminate the pitfalls on your path to public cloud

As organizations look to get smarter and more agile in how they gain value and insight from their data, they are now able to take advantage of a fundamental shift in architecture. In the last decade, as an industry, we have gone from monolithic machines with direct-attached storage to VMs to cloud. The main attraction of cloud is due to its separation of compute and storage – a major architectural shift in the infrastructure layer that changes the way data can be stored and processed.

How to run queries periodically in Apache Hive

In the lifecycle of a data warehouse in production, there are a variety of tasks that need to be executed on a recurring basis. To name a few concrete examples, scheduled tasks can be related to data ingestion (inserting data from a stream into a transactional table every 10 minutes), query performance (refreshing a materialized view used for BI reporting every hour), or warehouse maintenance (executing replication from one cluster to another on a daily basis).
