Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Redshift
Amazon Redshift is being used by our whole organization. It is our primary tool for our data warehouse. We decided to switch to a cloud database because our in house servers just weren't able to keep up with our need for fast data delivery. We can adjust the speed up to where we need it to be and it has been very useful.
Its definitely an improvement on all fronts for our business needs. Again, our MySQL server was really slow and we needed a more efficient solution. It was a major upgrade, but it is much more expensive than an in house server. It was expected but I'd say that lots of headaches dealing with server slowness have been relieved.

Would you buy Amazon Redshift again?
Redshift is best suited for our data storage and designing our fact and dimension tables. We keep our non-structured data there that can be accessed at any time as well as our relational database. I'd say that if you don't have a need for a relational databasae, then Redshift probably isn't going to be a viable product.
