ACCELERATING Analytics Sessions
How to Move from HIVE/Hadoop/Spark Infrastructure to Snowflake
See how Accordant Media moved from a HIVE/Hadoop/Spark infrastructure to Snowflake, providing their data users easy access to petabytes of structured and semi-structured data. Accordant reduced time spent on querying and accessing data and stopped having to give excuses like “Mappers failed,” “Reducers failed,” or “We are looking into the HIVE logs to see why the job failed.” Snowflake makes it easy to run SQL jobs instead of EMR jobs to get answers much faster.
