Meetup: Big Data Infrastructure: Streaming, management & analysis with Redshift with Panoply.io & ironSource As the volume and variety of data continues to grow more and more companies need to implement scalable big data infrastructure that transfers, manages, and analyzes their data in order to support analytics and insights. Developing, maintaining and scaling these technological terrors fall on the shoulders of developers.

Creating infrastructure that can deal with your unique needs, is user friendly, and scales with the influx of data that your company generates is a major hurdle to overcome. We will show you how to use cost-effective, and infinitely scalable data pipelines and management platforms built on top of Redshift, resulting in a simple but powerful data platform tailored to your company.

Part 1: How we stream 200B events /month in near real time into Redshift (Shimon Tolts)

Part 2: Redshift at Lightspeed: How to continuously optimize and modify Redshift schemas (Roi Avinoam)
