Capital One’s Data analysts have traditionally used leading analytic tools to prototype new insights and build stat models. To improve analyst productivity and innovation, Cap1 has embarked on a re-invention of the Data technology stack by deploying a Big Data Hub consisting of a central Hadoop Data Lake and a large suite of Open source tools and SW packages.
The platform & engineering team had to come up with a solution to enable fast prototyping of tools, isolate the workload in a contained environment and integrate it into a self-service portal . After evaluating different options, we chose Docker to build an ‘Analytic garage’ for the enterprise .
We’ll walk through some of the challenges we faced and techniques we used to integrate a wide variety of technologies into a single Docker container, access management, security & audit. As we expand the user base within the organization, we'll share future plans to progress innovations from the garage to a production ready Docker Analytic platform .
