AWS Glue

AWS Glue carefully analyzes data based on medical records. It is well suited in scenarios where you want to run a Python script and get support from AWS services like S3 and RDS. The records keep the information of the data in a well-structured format.

Databricks Unified Analytics Platform

Databricks has helped my teams write PySpark and Spark SQL jobs and test them out before formally integrating them in Spark jobs. Through Databricks we can create parquet and JSON output files. Datamodelers and scientists who are not very good with coding can get good insight into the data using the notebooks that can be developed by the engineers.

Cons

AWS Glue

  • Hard for non-developers or someone with a deficiency of experience with such development tools.
  • Provided code is fundamental and not always useful.

Databricks Unified Analytics Platform

  • The navigation through which one would create a workspace is a bit confusing at first. It takes a couple minutes to figure out how to create a folder and upload files since it is not the same as traditional file systems such as box.com
  • Also, when you create a table, if you forgot to copy the link where the table is stored, it is hard to relocate it. Most of the time I would have to delete the table and re-created.

Overall, AWS Glue is best for your organization if you were already a part of AWS services and dealt with large data sets like medical records. It is loaded with (ETL) service and intended to make it straightforward for clients to serve and load data for analytics.

This has been very useful in my organization for shared notebooks, integrated data pipeline automation and data sources integrations. Integration with AWS is seamless. Non tech users can easily learn how to use Databricks. You can have your company LDAP connect to it for login based access controls to some extent

Amazon responds in good time once the ticket has been generated but needs to generate tickets frequent because very few sample codes are available, and it's not cover all the scenarios.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Glue

We are already in AWS services, so AWS glue is the first choice for us. But for the comparison of ETL job making and process time, it's way faster for other services.
