Performing analytics on Amazon Managed Blockchain

Managed Blockchain follows an event-driven architecture. We can open up a wide range of analytic approaches by streaming events to Amazon Kinesis. For instance, we could analyze events in near-real time with Kinesis Data Analytics, perform petabyte scale data warehousing with Amazon RedShift, or use the Hadoop ecosystem with Amazon EMR. This allows us to use the right approach for every blockchain analytics use case.
In this post, we show you one approach that uses Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose to capture, monitor, and aggregate events into a dataset, and analyze it with Amazon Athena using standard SQL.
