Scaling Uber's Big Data Platform
Uber’s mission is to ignite opportunities by setting the world in motion. To fulfill this mission, Uber relies heavily on making data-driven decisions in every product area and we need to store and process an ever-increasing amount of data, in addition to providing faster, more reliable, and more-performant access. This talk will reflect on the challenges faced with scaling Uber’s Big Data Platform to ingest, store, and serve 100+ PB of data with minute level latency while efficiently utilizing our hardware.
