This Week in AWS Data

Issue #3: Monitoring Amazon Athena and ElasticSearch, Introducing Real-Time Insights, and more!


Hey all, and welcome to the latest This Week in AWS Data! This newsletter is meant for folks to stay up to date with everything that is going on in the AWS Data space, including technologies, updates, and resources that have to do with Data Science, Data Engineering, Big Data, and Machine Learning.

Let's dive into the resources for this week!


Updates from the AWS Blog (Feb. 19th to 25th, 2018)

Significant updates:

  • Analytics The AWS Big Data Blog summarized all of the updates and features that were added to Amazon Redshift in the last year. Get a high-level overview of these changes in the In-Depth Dive: Redshift 2017 Recap.
  • Serverless AWS released a serverless application repository with a set of starter application templates that let you quickly build out a number of serverless applications. Not everything here is data-related, of course, but there are a number of apps that are likely of interest to newsletter readers: for instance, try looking up apps related to `machine learning` or `kinesis` to get started.
