Presentation: "Augmenting your Data Warehouse with the Cloud” by Nick Larsen, Partner at iOLAP

 

Abstract
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the number one choice of businesses moving to the cloud.  From dynamic server scalability using EC2, relational Big Data storage on Redshift, Big Data processing in EMR/Hadoop, and streaming of real-time data at a massive scale with Kinesis, Amazon Web services has a wide range of powerful options to support and complement your data warehouse and business intelligence deployments.  In this session, we’ll review AWS services and their use case for BI/DW.  We will dig into alternate use cases and ways for you to grow into a cloud based infrastructure.
