Standard Presentation Online Workshop OARC 33 Day 1


Mr Bill Belanger (CIRA)


This talk will share the status, experience, and lessons learned on CIRA's adventure of moving our DNS packets processing into AWS (project code PcapChoo). The talk with provide a cloud-based alternative to using the common deployments of Hadoop and an on premise distributed file system. The talk will discuss the new methods used through the Pcap-choo system, with specific focus on the cloud technologies used within the AWS infrastructure. We will detail the conversion process we used to swap out data processing platforms, and outline lessons learned and improvements made through the conversion.
