AWS data lake pumps up Beachbody’s analytics architecture

Fitness company Beachbody set up a data lake system in the AWS cloud to support big data analytics applications after deciding an on-premises deployment would be too complicated.

Beachbody LLC runs a conventional on-premises Oracle data warehouse. But last year, when the maker of fitness and nutrition products decided to bulk up its analytics architecture by adding a Hadoop-based data lake, it headed to the cloud. The big data system went live in December in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, making Beachbody one of a growing number of organizations turning to cloud platforms for deployments of Hadoop and related technologies.
