Advanced Big Data Analytics Service team’s charter is to build a fully managed,

cloud native service focused on large-scale analytics on (mostly) unstructured

data stored in data lakes, and management of the data in the data lakes. The

service work scope encompasses not just good integration with OCI’s native

infrastructure (security, cloud storage, etc.), but also deep integration with

other relevant cloud native services in OCI (like Oracle Kubernetes, Data

Catalog, ADW, etc.). It includes doing cloud native ways of doing service level

patching & upgrades and maintaining high availability of the service in the

face of random failures & planned downtimes in the underlying

infrastructure (e.g., for things like patching the Linux kernels to take care

of a security vulnerability). Developing systems for monitoring and getting

telemetry into the service’s runtime characteristics and being able to take

actions on the telemetry data is a part of the charter.
