  • Redshift as a solution is viable in case an enterprise wants a relatively uncomplicated relational data storage engine that is elastic and autonomous.
  • The costs are reasonable compared to other storage systems provided Redshift is capable to grow with your business and reduce administrative costs.
  • Redshift integrates well with many of the offerings within AWS and outside it. The programmability story is also good.

  • Redshift leapfrogged Hive, providing a more stable, standardized, and scalable solution for querying server logs and raw usage data. This simplified data infrastructure while improving usability for users who are not on engineering staff as well as for power users.

  • Constant killed queries.
  • Not much performance boost in terms of the cache.
  • Users perceived the data warehouses as incapable of supporting widespread usage throughout the enterprise.

  • As of now, there are no results on the ROI, as we have just deployed this tool about a year ago. But this is a good tool to use as it is the advanced version of the data reporting platform.
  • With the help of Amazon RedShift, we can properly use our server spaces which in result gives a proper ROI as with the limited storage capacity we can store enough data.
  • It tends to work very slow, so it reduces the efficiency of the employees who are using it. Hence this is the major challenge with the employees.

  • Improve decision support based on quick data analytics.
  • Costlier compared to others, but we can generate ROI within a year, based on large scale applications.

  • Very positive for what it has done, providing a way to aggregate data sources.
  • It allows marketing to pull statistics across the consumer base that would not have been otherwise possible.
  • It allows actual analytics across the company, in an easily accessible manner.

  • Easy to set up and very cost effective to run large complex queries.
  • Separation of roles between our production and analytic environment.
  • A lot of cloud service is RedShift ready (i.e., Segment, FiveTran, Matillion) which decreases implementation efforts

  • It allows for an almost seamless integration of our data which can then be used by other departments for analytical purposes.
  • No in house resources are needed for keeping the data alive and performing backup/migration tasks of the data in its end state.
