Overview of the Amazon Timestream Database

Lab Details

  1. This lab walks you through to create an Amazon Timestream database and then create a table in that database. Next we will insert some values to the table using a Lambda function and then list them.

  2. You will be practicing this lab using the Amazon Timestream Database and Lambda function.

  3. Duration: 45 minutes

  4. AWS Region: US East (N. Virginia) us-east-1


What is an Amazon Timestream Database?

  • Amazon Timestream is a fast, scalable, and serverless time series database service for IoT and operational applications that makes it easy to store and analyze trillions of events per day.

  • Amazon Timestream saves you time and cost in managing the lifecycle of time series data by keeping recent data in memory and moving historical data to a cost optimized storage tier based upon user defined policies.

  • Amazon Timestream is serverless – there are no servers to manage and no capacity to provision, so you can focus on building your applications.

  • Amazon Timestream's purpose-built query engine transparently accesses and combines data across storage tiers without you having to specify the data location.

  • You no longer need to use disparate tools to access recent and historical data.

  • Amazon Timestream ensures that your time series data is always encrypted, whether at rest or in transit.

    Use Cases

  1. IoT applications : Amazon Timestream makes it possible for you to quickly analyze time series data generated by IoT applications using built-in analytic functions such as smoothing, approximation, and interpolation.

  2. DevOps applications : Amazon Timestream is ideal for DevOps solutions that monitor health and usage metrics and analyze data in real-time to improve performance and availability. It collect and analyze operational metrics such as CPU/memory utilization, network data, and IOPS to monitor health and optimize instance usage

  3. Analytics applications : Amazon Timestream enables you to easily store and analyze data at scale. It stores and processes the incoming and outgoing web traffic for your applications.
