Course overview

This course uses an Amazon Redshift data warehouse as part of the data analytics solution. The course focuses on the data collection, ingestion, cataloging, storage, and processing components of the analytics pipeline. You will design and build data analytics solutions for data warehousing use cases. You will learn how a data warehouse can be integrated into a data lake or a modern data architecture. You will also learn to apply best practices to support security, performance, and cost optimization of Amazon Redshift.

Who should attend this training

This course is intended for:

  • Data warehouse engineers

  • Data platform engineers

  • Architects and operators who build and manage data analytics pipelines

Course Objectives

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Compare the features and benefits of data warehouses, data lakes, and modern data architectures

  • Design and implement a data warehouse analytics solution

  • Identify and apply appropriate techniques, including compression, to optimize data storage

  • Select and deploy appropriate options to ingest, transform, and store data

  • Choose the appropriate instance and node types, clusters, auto scaling, and network topology for a particular business use case

  • Understand how data storage and processing affect the analysis and visualization mechanisms needed to gain actionable business insights

  • Secure data at rest and in transit

  • Monitor analytics workloads to identify and remediate problems

  • Apply cost management best practices


Students familiar with combining AWS technologies to support data lakes or other data-driven workloads will benefit from this course. We recommend that attendees of this course have:
