DTSC13-300: Infrastructure for Data Analytics


Building on students’ existing knowledge of data science techniques, this subject investigates the range of deployment options to automatically extract insights from the vast amount of data available. This includes traditional server and database deployment, as well as a range of popular cloud solutions including open-source alternatives. The advantages and disadvantages of different approaches will be discussed. In addition to popular big data analytics deployment options such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Big Query, Apache Spark, and NoSQL, students will also learn about the MapReduce and Hadoop framework. Importantly, security implications associated with big data analytic deployments will be discussed, including knowledge of principles for cybersecurity and an ability to implement basic best practices.
