Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR)

Easily run and scale your big data frameworks

Large volumes of data inundate today’s modern enterprises. To outperform competitors and become a leader, organizations want to move away from relational data warehouses that are difficult to scale and have operational limitations.  To make the most out of data, enterprises want to migrate very large databases to a scalable, secure, and comprehensive data storage and analytics platform.

Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR) is an Apache Hadoop and Spark distribution built for the cloud that combines the integration and testing rigor of commercial Hadoop distributions with the scale, simplicity, and cost effectiveness of the cloud. It allows you to launch Hadoop and Spark clusters in minutes without needing to do node provisioning, cluster setup, Hadoop configuration, or cluster tuning.

As a cloud migration expert, Virtusa has designed and deployed multiple solutions with Amazon EMR to process large-scale data volumes and reduce computing cost, enhance ETL, and boost innovation for our customers.

With over two decades of data management expertise and our proprietary data migration accelerators, Virtusa provides data-driven, AI-powered recommendations to migrate on-prem Hadoop and Spark apps to Amazon EMR and integrate it with other AWS Big Data services.

Key features include:
