In this course, we will perform an in-depth review of the Amazon Athena service. We will review and explain fundamental AWS Athena storage and querying concepts. We will highlight suitable use cases in which Athena can be applied effectively. You will be introduced to the basic underlying technology that Athena has been built on. We spend time discussing the process of creating and setting up Athena databases, tables, and partitions. We examine the process in which Athena SQL queries are authored and how they are managed. We review current Athena limitations and pricing. Finally, we will provide a demonstration in which we publish CloudTrail logs into an S3 bucket. We make some ad-hoc security group changes to generate a few CloudTrail events - and finally we’ll use Athena to search and find the captured security group API update calls.
