If you are looking to take a lot of the traditional "database administration" work off someone's plate, going with Amazon Athena certainly has "no code" options to optimize lots of database tasks. I would say this option is less appropriate if you have other Microsoft things at play, such as Power BI.

Redis Cloud is very well suited for scenarios where fast data access is required or somewhat unstructured data needs to be stored. For us, it has worked very well for user session storage. However, if you have large amounts of structured data that is not frequently accessed, Redis is not the solution and a traditional relational database is likely more appropriate.

  • The only area of improvement I have found is the documentation is sometimes lacking and could be a little more comprehensive.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Athena, a product from Amazon, competes with offerings from Google and Microsoft. Overall, I think your database choice depends on some of the other applications you are running at your company. For example, if you are using Microsoft Power BI for reporting needs, you might want to consider going the Azure route.

I've used Heroku Redis and RedisToGo. Redis Cloud has the best free/developer plan, and we have never had an issue.
