Re-imagining data infrastructures as event-based architectures

Submitted by Raj Rohit (@jalemrajrohit) on Monday, 13 November 2017

Technical level: Intermediate


This talk would be about how we built a distributed serverless batch data architecture at Episource. This includes the end-to-end ETL pipeline which handles distributed Machine Learning, as well as how we automated ML deployment using the event-based (serverless) paradigm.


  • Whirlwind intro on what the serverless paradigm is
  • How we built a batch architecture instead of real-time
  • How we got around the 5 min. time limit of Lambda to build an end-to-end completely serverless distributed Deep Learning pipeline
  • How load balancing and monitoring can be done for such huge, complex systems
  • How the serverless paradigm helps re-imagine data architectures for data engineers
