Welcome to the Amazon Database Services Webinar Series homepage. These monthly webinars will cover a range of Business and Technical topics and will provide you with all the pertinent information on the Amazon Database Services.
Webinars will be run by our subject matter experts and will provide you with the opportunity to learn about our products, interact with your peers, and ask any relevant questions.
This session follows our webinar on data loading and key choices and shows you how to use Amazon Redshift efficiently. Hear our experts discuss how to extract the best performance from your Amazon Redshift cluster by using the commands like vacuum appropriately. Understand what information is exposed in the Amazon Redshift console and how to use it. Learn how to tune performance by explaining query plans and examining how memory and disk space are used.
Efficient schema design reduces cost and eliminates barriers to scalability. This requires a different approach to data modeling, with a focus on optimizing for usage patterns rather than merely describing objects. In this session, you will learn best practice techniques for minimizing payload size and modeling one-to-many relationships in DynamoDB, leveraging the versatility of hash+range primary keys. These methods have been used extensively by customers with substantial workloads on DynamoDB, enabling them to grow their applications quickly and cost-effectively.
Loading very large data sets into your data warehouse can take a long time and consume a lot of computing resources. How data is loaded can also affect query performance. We will discuss best practices for loading data efficiently into Amazon Redshift using COPY commands, bulk inserts, and staging tables. We will also cover the key decisions that will heavily influence overall query performance. These design choices also have a significant effect on storage requirements, which in turn affects query performance by reducing the number of I/O operations and minimizing the memory required to process queries.
Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity while managing time-consuming database administration tasks, freeing you up to focus on your applications and business. In this webinar we will discuss how to move your existing databases to RDS with minimum disruption. We will also cover how to deploy very high performance databases on the cloud. And finally, we will provide examples of how customers have successfully deployed high performance databases using RDS.
Amazon Redshift is the new data warehouse service from Amazon Web Services. Redshift offers you fast query performance when analyzing virtually any size data set using the same SQL-based tools and business intelligence applications you use today. In this webinar, we will take a detailed look at Redshift, including a live demonstration. This webinar is ideal for anyone looking to gain deeper insight into their data, without the usual challenges of time, cost and effort.
Come join AWS team to learn more about how you can use RDS for Oracle to manage the database used to run PeopleSoft financial and human capital management software. This webinar is for customers looking to ease the burden of Oracle database management associated with running PeopleSoft on AWS. The DLZP Group, an AWS and Oracle SI partner, will show how they have used RDS for Oracle to create a Test Drive environment that is free for customers to use and evaluate, via the program.
Whether you are preparing to power a Presidential Election (Obama for America 2012) or building comprehensive online brand abuse detection tools, picking the right database architecture has a lot to do with how your application can perform and scale to meet your needs. AWS offers a solid array of open source and commercial database choices, from do-it-yourself to fully managed services which automate software deployments and scaling. Customers can choose the database engine and architecture that best suits their organization's needs.
Obama for America chose MySQL, Elasticache and DyamoDB as part of their architecture to power a successful Presidential campaign. Edmodo uses MySQL as the engine to power their online learning platform. BrandVerity uses both MySQL and DynamoDB as a backbone for their online brand and trademark abuse detection tools. In this session, you will hear experts from each of these groups explain why they made specific database design choices and how the database architecture has helped them achieve their goals.
In this webinar, you will discover how Amazon RDS for Microsoft SQL Server® makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale SQL Server deployments in the cloud. We will discuss how to get started quickly and how Amazon RDS can make it easier to operate your database infrastructure, and free you to focus on higher value added development activities.
High performance databases require substantial effort in order to achieve and maintain consistently high throughput. This effort fails to differentiate applications and services, and it increases cost. Learn how Amazon customers leverage managed database services to dramatically increase database performance and reduce their administrative burden. Featured services include: Amazon RDS, DynamoDB and ElastiCache.
Is your application ready to scale up for the holiday season? This webinar will show you how DynamoDB can help you build a scalable, high performance, cost-effective application, and in days rather than weeks or months . We’ll provide an introduction to DynamoDB and walk through best practices on achieving high scalability using examples from our customers – including how to scale relational databases with Amazon DynamoDB.
In this webinar, you will discover how Amazon RDS for Oracle automatically manages cumbersome and time consuming maintenance tasks on your behalf. We will discuss how to get started quickly and how Amazon RDS can make it easier to operate your database infrastructure, and free you to focus on higher value added database administration activities.
Deploying and managing databases can be time consuming, complex, and costly. Amazon RDS removes this complexity and makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale relational databases in the cloud. RDS fully manages database administration tasks such as software installation and patching, database and log back-ups for disaster recovery, replication, and monitoring.
