Course Description

Using a hands-on lab approach, explore how to use Amazon Redshift to set up and configure a data warehouse on the cloud in this 9-video course. Discover how to interact with Redshift service with both the console and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Command Line Interface (CLI). Key concepts covered here include how to use the Amazon Redshift Quick Launch feature to provision a data warehouse; provisioning a Redshift cluster with the default cluster; and tool configuration options for a Redshift cluster, and metrics available to optimize a cluster configuration. Next, learn how to create Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles on AWS that include necessary permissions to interact with Redshift and S3 services; to provision an IAM user that can connect to and interact with AWS using the CLI; and to install the AWS command-line interface to create and delete Redshift clusters. Then learn to use Redshift Query Editor to create tables, load data, and run queries; and learn features of Amazon Redshift and commands and configurations needed to work with Redshift by using the CLI.
