Cloud Composer: Qwik Start - Console
Workflows are a common theme in data analytics - they involve ingesting, transforming, and analyzing data to figure out the meaningful information within. In Google Cloud Platform (GCP), the tool for hosting workflows is Cloud Composer which is a hosted version of the popular open source workflow tool Apache Airflow.
In this lab, you use the GCP Console to set up a Cloud Composer environment. You then use Cloud Composer to go through a simple workflow that verifies the existence of a data file, creates a Cloud Dataproc cluster, runs an Apache Hadoop wordcount job on the Cloud Dataproc cluster, and deletes the Cloud Dataproc cluster afterwards.
What you'll do
Use GCP Console to create the Cloud Composer environment
View and run the DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph) in the Airflow web interface
View the results of the wordcount job in storage.
