In the Microsoft Cloud Workshop: Real-time data with Azure Database for PostgreSQL Hyperscale (Course 40563G) workshop, you will learn how to use advanced features of the managed PostgreSQL PaaS service on Azure to make your database more scalable and able to handle the rapid ingest of streaming data while simultaneously generating and serving pre-aggregated data for reports. You will design a resilient stream processing pipeline to ingest, process, and save real-time data to Postgres. Next, you will learn how to explore and gain insights from flat files at scale, perform aggregates, and save valuable information to your database. Finally, you will create complex reports containing advanced visualizations, using a drag-and-drop interface, and use them to build a customizable dashboard that gets updated in real-time.
At the end of this workshop, you will be better able to:
- Implement a highly scalable, managed open source database solution.
- Ensure that it can handle real-time, roll-up and serve data for advanced visualizations.
