Today, the rise of Serverless Technology and Modern Cloud Migration has brought about a renewed focus on Automation of Workload Migration from on-premise services such as Hadoop to the modern Cloud Platform. Most enterprises today, realize the need for transitioning their data engineering and data science workloads to Managed Cloud-based Processing. Several factors are responsible for this transition:

  • Big Data pioneers have significantly lost market share, while Microsoft  Azure & other public cloud offerings reported a 200% rise in adoption of its managed Big Data solutions.
  • Cloud providers like Azure and AWS, released reference architectures supporting ‘Serverless Compute’ with Spark as the default compute engine for the Data Lake.
  • Cloud storage costs are comparable to or lesser than on-prem storage cost.

While our first post in this series discussed Migrating from Hadoop to the modern cloud architecture and the rise of Serverless Technology adoption, our second post took a deep dive into understanding the role that MLens plays in enterprises’ migration journey from Hadoop to the Cloud on Databricks.

With MLens, users will experience automation right from the assessment phase to the migration phase, reducing time and effort by over 70% in the entire Big Data Migration journey.

In this post, we will discuss more about MLens, our in-house Migration solution, and our partnership with industry leader, Databricks, that has enriched the migration experience of our customers who have adopted MLens on their Cloud Journey.
