Announcing Amazon Athena – Instantly Analyze Your Data in S3 Using SQL

Amazon Athena is a new serverless query service that makes it easy to analyze data in Amazon S3, using standard SQL. With Athena, there is no infrastructure to setup or manage, and you can start analyzing your data immediately. You don’t even need to load your data into Athena, it works directly with data stored in S3.

In this webinar, we will show you how easy it is to start querying your data stored in Amazon S3, with Amazon Athena. First we will use Athena to create the schema for data already in S3. Then, we will demonstrate how you can run interactive queries through the built-in query editor. We will provide best practices and use cases for Athena. Then, we will talk about supported queries, data formats, and strategies to save costs when querying data with Athena.

Learning Objectives:
• Learn about the capabilities and features of Amazon Athena
• Understand the different use cases
• Describe how to run queries and options to store and visualize results
