Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Redshift

Redshift is our data warehouse used by our organization. It takes data from different sources and put them together in Redshift for our Analytics team to diagnose.
  • Since it's part of AWS it is fairly quick and easy to set up.
  • You can add nodes fairly quick to expand the data needs.
  • Performance from the analytics reports accessing Redshift is really good.
  • Better database management when looking up table metadata or sizes of tables.
  • Need a better query analyzer.
  • Finding errors during a data load can be a little daunting at times.
  • Cheaper cost to run.
  • Readily available and can easily expand.
  • Part of the AWS echo system which is great, because our Analytic tools are also part of AWS.
The main reason we chose Redshift was because of the cost-effectiveness of running and maintaining the warehouse.
A lot of times when we have issues in Redshift, we have to google issues that may have come up in the past. We have not contacted AWS directly for any issues.
