Elastic mapping example

You work for one of the largest community college that maintains millions of records in their ongoing student database. The college has more than 10,000 faculty members teaching at 45 campuses and 700 locations across the globe. The college has a very large IT infrastructure and about 15 TB of information gets downloaded on daily basis from the Internet.
To avoid performance, scalability, and high cost challenges, the college plans to port its entire data from its operational data stores to Amazon S3 within a short span of time. Create an elastic mapping that runs on the elastic cluster to achieve faster performance when you read data from the operational data stores and write data to the Amazon S3 target.
    1. In Data Integration, click New > Mappings > Elastic Mapping > Create.
    The New Mapping dialog box appears.
    2. Enter a name, location, and description for the mapping.
    3. On the Source transformation, specify a name and description in the general properties.
    4. On the Source tab, perform the following steps to provide the source details to read data from the source:
    1. a. In the Connection field, select the required source connection.
    2. b. In the Source Type field, select the type of the source.
    3. c. In the Object field, select the required object.
    4. d. In the Advanced Properties section, provide the appropriate values.
    5. On the Fields tab, map the source fields to the target fields.
    6. On the Target transformation, specify a name and description in the general properties.
    7. On the Target tab, perform the following steps to provide the target details to write data to the Amazon S3 target:
    1. a. In the Connection field, select the Amazon S3 V2 target connection.
    2. b. In the Target Type field, select the type of the target.
    3. c. In the Object field, select the required object.
    4. d. In the Operation field, select the required operation.
    5. e. In the Advanced Properties section, provide appropriate values for the advanced target properties.
    8. Map the source and target.
    9. Click Save > Run to validate the mapping.
    In Monitor, you can monitor the status of the logs after you run the task.
