Hadoop data lake architecture tests IT on data integration

SAN JOSE, Calif. — These days, a rolling pageant of glittering new data objects includes data planes, data fabrics, data streaming and more. It’s almost enough to make you forget about the shiny object of just a few years ago: the Hadoop data lake architecture.

But plenty of data teams are still working hard to successfully implement real-life Hadoop data lakes — ones that underlie many organizations’ hopes for better predictive analytics and maybe even artificial intelligence.

Such was one of the lessons from Hortonworks’ DataWorks Summit 2018. That is where people like Sudhir Menon told the story behind big companies’ moves to use their data hoards for digital transformation — as seen at tech-infused upstarts, like Airbnb and Uber.

The journey that Menon, vice president for information management at hotelier Hilton Worldwide, described includes a Hadoop data lake architecture as an integral part.

“We have a lot of information in different formats, and we are bringing that into the data lake. Every [data] entity from every channel is coming into the lake now,” Menon told a conference session audience.

The Hadoop data lake architecture has formed a basis for a potential consumer application — a new digital key app that allows Hilton Honors program guests to, in effect, check themselves directly into their room, he said.

Still, this will be a multiyear project, Menon noted. The project, which seeks to incrementally build out the Hadoop-based Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) into a new repository for enterprise data, began about two years ago and is now moving toward going live, with many more “agile sprints” ahead, according to Menon.

The system employs a variety of tools beyond HDP, including WSO2 API management, Talend integration and Amazon Redshift cloud data warehouse software.

Populating the data lake

For Menon’s teams, populating a data lake means transforming assorted ingested data into JSON events with a microservices architecture.

The transformations are a first step in a data-refining process. The experience of many data lake users has shown data has to be sorted into some sensible format as soon as possible if it is to be used with BI tools by business analysts, although raw data versions are still preserved for experimental data scientists.

Menon emphasized, while this “renovation and innovation” project supports data science, it also provides a new foundation for leaner everyday data reporting. He said, during the course of the project, Hilton has decommissioned 380 dashboards for management reporting and replaced them with a more compact roster of 40 dashboards. 

What price, data democracy?

For companies like Hilton, with years of legacy data, Hadoop data lake architectures can require significant effort.

Another data lake project is underway at United Airlines. At DataWorks, Joe Olson, senior manager for big data analytics at the Chicago-based airline, recounted a move to a new big data analytics environment that includes a data lake, along with a “curated layer of data.”

Olson described the significant work required to connect existing Teradata data warehouse analytics with pieces of Hortonworks’ platform.

We have a lot of information in different formats, and we are bringing that into the data lake. Every [data] entity from every channel is coming into the lake now.
Sudhir Menonvice president of information management at Hilton Worldwide

“Moving small data sets is trivial … but we don’t yet have a good way to handle large data sets of certain types,” Olson said in a session on big data at United.

In yet another session, which was whimsically entitled “The Curious Case of Data Lake Redemption,” Shivinder Singh, a database architect and engineer at Verizon Wireless, based in Basking Ridge, N.J., described issues the telecom giant encountered as it opened up a Hadoop data lake to a wider group of analytics users.

Singh described differences in block file sizes in Hadoop data lakes versus single-client implementations that can bring about garbage collection issues with observable performance impact. He said his teams worked with Hortonworks to address such issues in its data lake buildouts.

Despite such implementation issues, he emphasized, the Hadoop platform has helped drive diverse analytics advances, as Verizon evolved its architecture to deal with bigger and evermore variegated amounts of data.

Sampling the data fabric

While the Hadoop data lake architecture was meant, in part, to reduce data silos in organizations, the reality has been that several data lakes may arise, becoming silos in themselves. At its user event, Hortonworks expanded on its recent discussions of data fabric architectures, meant to mesh varied data lakes and other data framework components.

The company’s Hortonworks DataPlane Service (DPS) is an example, being a software layer that handles governance and data management for multiple data lakes.

Like other products from vendors that once focused solely on Hadoop Distributed File System data storage, DPS supports a variety of storage formats, including cloud object storage.

“The data fabric is an idea that has been around and has evolved to encompass the reality that, going forward, these systems will be hybrids of on-premises and public cloud systems and, eventually, will be on multiple clouds,” said Doug Henschen, an analyst at Constellation Research, in an interview

That could mean that, while the data lake may continue to find use, it may not actually be a Hadoop data lake architecture, Henschen said.

“Now, companies want the data lake concept to encompass more than just Hadoop,” he said.

Posting passwords on Trello leads to latest data exposure mess

Data exposures in web applications and cloud services are becoming more in fashion these days, and Trello is the latest service being used poorly in the enterprise.

According to an investigation reported by Brian Krebs, Flashpoint security analyst David Shear discovered hundreds of boards exposing data and passwords on Trello from government agencies, healthcare organizations and others. This follows news that large enterprises and government agencies accidentally set Amazon Web Services buckets and Google Groups to public.

By default, Trello boards are either password-protected or visible only to team members. However, it is possible to share boards with anyone on the web, and the contents of those boards can even be indexed by search engines.

Shear found organizations sharing logins and passwords on Trello for corporate WordPress accounts and iPage domain hosting accounts. The Maricopa County Department of Public Health in Phoenix exposed sensitive info, including how to navigate the organization’s payroll system. Even the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, which is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, was found to be leaking passwords on Trello.

Many companies don’t realize that they have employees storing confidential or sensitive information on public-facing sites, like Trello.
Justin Jettdirector of audit and compliance for Plixer

James Lerud, head of the behavioral research team at Verodin, based in McLean, Va., called this incident “the latest in a long line of public exposures involving improper handling of credentials.”

“There have been numerous examples of private keys out in the open on GitHub. It’s pretty difficult for companies like Trello or GitHub to prevent this type of exposure; the responsibility lies with the users of these services,” Lerud wrote via email. “Companies [that] use these types of services need to regularly audit what kind of data is being exposed to the public and not rely on a third party to discover problems.”

Justin Jett, director of audit and compliance for Plixer, based in Kennebunk, Maine, said it is “an extremely dangerous practice to store credentials on public-facing sites or directories.”

“Passwords should never be stored in a manner that could be perceived as plaintext. They should be stored in a secure and encrypted environment where data thieves aren’t given a free pass to the data. The number of phishing attacks used to steal users’ credentials continues to grow; we don’t need to make it even easier for the thieves,” Jett wrote via email.

“Many companies don’t realize that they have employees storing confidential or sensitive information on public-facing sites, like Trello. Security teams often don’t have the visibility they need to know when credentials have been compromised until after a data breach,” Jett wrote. “In many cases, it likely comes down to a matter of educating users on best practices. Corporate training can aid the reduction of such blatant exposure of sensitive data.”
