Scott Lee, Amazon Web Services
Scott is a cloud engineer at Amazon Web Services, focused on Elastic MapReduce, a managed Hadoop service. He is also a volunteer contributor to Mozilla open-source projects, focusing on system administration tasks.
My tutorial covers Big Data as a managed service in the Cloud. As individuals and companies deal with increasing amounts of data they can quickly get up and running with Hadoop and associated tools to store, analyze, and act on their data. Cloud resources are elastic so they can scale up as well as down quickly and easily, no matter the size of the data to be processed.
