Big Data on AWS

Why Attend

In this course, you will learn about cloud-based big data solutions such as Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR), Amazon Redshift, Amazon Kinesis, and the rest of the AWS big data platform. You will learn how to use Amazon EMR to process data using the broad ecosystem of Apache Hadoop tools like Hive and Hue. Additionally, you will learn how to create big data environments, work with Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Redshift, and Amazon Kinesis, and leverage best practices to design big data environments for security and cost-effectiveness.
