AWS Cloud Deployment
The Elastic Scheduler is easily deployed as a service on AWS using the pre-built Elastic Scheduler Cloud Formation that is available on the AWS Marketplace.
Once the Cloud formation is launched as an EC2 instance, the Elastic Scheduler is automatically started on the EC2 instance. The Elastic Scheduler requires a MySQL Database for persistence, Amazon Web Services RDS (Relational Database Service) can be used to provision a new MySQL database instance.
In order to ensure that all access to SSL/TLS and from the Elastic Scheduler is encrypted and secure the AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) can be used to provision and deploy certificate for the service.
Avik Cloud Elastic Scheduler can be deployed locally or in a private cloud on any Windows, Linux or MacOS machine and only requires a local Docker installation (http://docker.com) to run and a MySQL database for persistence.
Who is Elastic Scheduler for? Why should I consider using this product?
Any company using AWS for their application hosting can potentially utilize this tool. Many data warehouse and database applications are deployed in MySQL, Redshift, Aurora and Snowflake where the end user is a business analyst or a Data Scientist interested in uploading data or downloading data for spreadsheet analysis. Elastic Scheduler is intuitive and simple to use scheduler enabling analysts to upload/download data without IT involvement or major technical knowledge.
How does Elastic Scheduler work?
Elastic scheduler is a java application with capabilities to create and execute Cron jobs (Linux) behind the scene. Elastic Scheduler has inbuilt scheduling module to keep track of jobs which are scheduled for future execution. Also, Administrative module controls the privileges of the users and what they can see within the scheduler. Monitoring module keeps track of past job details for review and audit.
How is Elastic Scheduler delivered? Is it a SaaS product, a client install etc?
Elastic Scheduler is delivered as an AMI via the AWS Marketplace. This means you launch your own instance of the Elastic Scheduler product into your own AWS environment. It is not a SaaS product, in the sense that it is deployed in client’s AWS environment. You will never have to connect to Unico Solution to run Elastic Scheduler.
Once your instance is spun-up and configured, you and your team of developers/data professionals access the tool using your web browser. There is no client install.
Under the hood the product is simply a normal Amazon Linux instance running Tomcat, a small Dynamo db (used to hold config information and saved jobs) and the Elastic Scheduler software (a Java application). You launch it just like you would launch any other AMI from your EC2 console or from the AWS Marketplace.
The AWS Marketplace is a trusted storefront of applications, each designed for AWS and tested, scanned and authorized by Amazon. The only difference between a Marketplace AMI and a “normal” AMI is that the Marketplace AMI is tagged for billing. As such, billing for Elastic Scheduler is via your existing AWS account (no need to give us your credit card details).
What databases scripts can I run using Elastic Scheduler?
Any SQL Scripts (native to appropriate database) can be scheduled. The tool has ability execute multiline SQL code as well. Also you can execute any Linux compatible jobs by scheduling those scripts.
What databases scripts can I run using Elastic Scheduler?
