This is the first in a series of engineering posts where we take a deep look at the technical underpinnings of Stratasan's analytics platform. We hope you enjoy and perhaps learn something! This does assume a technical background—consider yourself warned :)
We've built Stratasan's analytics platform atop of Amazon Web Services and are big fans of the offerings AWS provides. Our application and worker servers are EC2 instances, application data is stored in an RDS Postgres database, Blackbird results and Canvas PDFs are stored in S3 and our considerable collection of healthcare data is stored and queried from a Redshift cluster.
