Magento Quick Start Guide
Many e-commerce sites have been flocking to Magento for its open-source content management system. As an e-commerce solution, Magento provides flexible and scalable enterprise-class features that help drive customer traffic to online stores.
As such, AWS has released a quick start guide for Magento users. The Magento Quick Start Reference Deployment contains information on how to build an AWS cluster for version 1.9.2 of the Magento Community Edition. It also provides best practices, cost estimates, and recommended outlines for AWS.
Amazon Redshift with User-Defined Functions
Nothing creates a petabytes-scale data warehouse than Amazon Redshift. Redshift takes care of providing the data infrastructure so that you may use your business intelligence tools to analyse data at your leisure, all for the cost of $1,000 per terabyte per year, which is less than 1/10th of the cost of more traditional means.
Now, AWS has made Redshift even more useful by enabling user defined functions based on PostgreSQL syntax. You can create your own customized, scalar Python 2.7 functions which you can execute in parallel across your entire cluster.
Apart from UDFs, you may also access an entire library of functions available in Python, or add your own libraries from S3 and the web, including NumPy, SciPy, Pandas, Dateutil, and Pytz. Together, these functions makes for a more powerful and versatile user experience in Amazon Redshift.
