To get started, you search the AWS marketplace for Kognitio. Here is the AWS Marketplace page in the Web browser.
Installation is easy as starting the wizard for the Amazon Machine Image on the marketplace.
Setting Up a Server
I wanted a bigger server, so I increased it to an M1 Medium.
Watch the Storage Capacity
The server image comes with several storage volumes attached to it. Be sure to pay attention to pricing on these.
Setting Up Desktop Client Tool
Configuring the desktop client tools requires setting up an ODBC connection to the remote AWS server.
Logging Into the Database Server
After configuring the ODBC connection, you can log into the database server from your desktop.
Kognitio Displays Database Tables
Once logged in, you're presented with what appears to be a typical desktop database client tool. Here we're listing some tables.
Creating and Running SQL Scripts
The console lets you create entire SQL scripts that you can execute.
Tools to Debug SQL Code
The console also includes debugging tools so you can trace through your SQL code.
Kognitio Keeps You Informed
There are several reports available, particularly dealing with RAM usage since Kognitio operates in-memory.
