Design and Monitor your RedShift Database Like a Boss
It's our first Montreal AWS Users Group Meetup of 2019 and it's a good one! Nicolas Marchildon & Leopoldo Vargas from Plusgrade present "Design and Monitor your RedShift Database Like a Boss." Make sure to RSVP and we'll see you there! Presentation Title: Design and Monitor your RedShift Database Like a Boss Presentation Summary: Storing large amounts of data is easy. Querying is harder. Doing it quickly, even harder. Optimizing how data is stored is essential to achieve fast analytical performance. We will see what makes RedShift a great database, when to use it, and how to design a schema that's efficient to query. First, we will see why a columnar can outperform a row-based storage, then dive into RedShift's distribution styles, and see what their impact is with different schemas, through the RedShift console and CloudWatch metrics. Presenters Bios: Nicolas Marchildon is currently leading a data team at Plusgrade, the market-leading provider of upgrade solutions, a key segment of the ancillary revenue and merchandising sector in the global travel industry.

    What we're about

    Utilisateurs, dévelopeurs & ingénieurs de systèmes, joignez vous à notre dynamique communauté d'utilisateurs d' Amazon Web Services. Echangez, partagez and apprenez sur les services AWS et la meilleurs façon de les utiliser.
    Les meetups prennent places tous les deux mois, et y sont invités divers présentateurs avec une expérience pratique de AWS incluant les technologies de l'écosystème AWS.
    Due à la croissance rapide qu' a connu AWS au sein des dévelopeurs, les compagnies nouvelles et les entreprises à traver le Canada, AWS est devenue une platform importante. Dans le but de donner plus de pouvoir à nos utilisateurs, nous sommes en train d'établir les communautés Canadiennes à Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, Montréal & Waterloo


    Users, developers & system engineers, come join a growing and dynamic community of Amazon Web Services (AWS) users. Interact with others to answer questions, share ideas, and learn about AWS' services and best practices.

    Meetups are usually held every two months featuring speakers with hands on AWS experience and including technology in the AWS ecosystem.

    With the rapid growth of AWS among individual developers, start-ups, and enterprises across Canada it has become a powerful platform. To empower AWS Users we are building the Canadian community with Meetups in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal & Waterloo.
