Our big dream is to share stories that we unwrap from our open datasets with the whole world. We’re exploring new ways to present visual and interactive graphs and charts that would communicate real time student needs across every grade level, subject and public school in America.
While we are still crunching numbers and visualizing results, the first hurdle we had to overcome was infrastructural. How do we make all these visualizations and all this data available right on the site and allow for fast and user-friendly access to this information? We turned to Amazon cloud and, specifically, a new type of database solution called Redshift to unlock incredible performance, bringing us closer to our dream.
Check out this blog post, to learn more about how we migrated and set up Redshift for our analytics.
