Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Redshift

We have decided to purchase Amazon Redshift since we started the project of building a new "data lake," so the first step was to decide which tool would be more appropriate to use as a data warehouse. Since we have everything on the cloud, we choose Amazon Redshift to connect our current tools on AWS and integrate the data.
  • Data integration is very simple to perform
  • The tool provides some advice that is very useful
  • Their support is always complete and easygoing
  • Their documentation could be even better
  • Without Amazon Redshift, we were not be able to build our data warehouse and provide the foundation to our BI module.
  • I don't see any negative impact except the costs that we have now.
The best advantage for us was the easy way to integrate our current solution in AWS to Amazon Redshift.

Do you think Amazon Redshift delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Amazon Redshift's feature set?

Yes

Did Amazon Redshift live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Amazon Redshift go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Amazon Redshift again?

Yes

If you are looking for something easy to implement that will give you a nice performance, I would suggest Amazon Redshift. I'm using it in AWS environment, so I don't know if in another cloud environment the performance and all the features would be nice as well. It's also important to check if the price fits to you too.
