Analyzing big data quickly and efficiently requires a data warehouse optimized to handle and scale for large datasets. Amazon Redshift is a fast, petabyte-scale data warehouse that makes it simple and cost-effective to analyze all of your data for a fraction of the cost of traditional data warehouses. In this session, we take an in-depth look at data warehousing with Amazon Redshift for big data analytics. We cover best practices to take advantage of Amazon Redshift's columnar technology and parallel processing capabilities to deliver high throughput and query performance. We also discuss how to design optimal schemas, load data efficiently, and use work load management.
