Data Engineer, Metropolis

Our business relies on providing analytics across a range of data sources for our clients, so it’s critical that we provide both a transparent and secure experience for them. We use Amazon S3 as our data lake and Ahana Cloud for Presto for ad hoc queries on that data lake.

Now, with the Ahana and AWS Lake Formation integration, we get even more granular security with data access control that’s easy to configure and native to our AWS stack. This allows us to scale analytics out to our teams without worrying about security concerns.
