Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Redshift

We use Amazon Redshift for our insights platform in our R&D space. Our team creates reports and dashboards on tools for business use. Amazon Redshift provides greater supply chain visibility, increased information on product movement, and high efficiency at a much faster rate.
  • Robust as compared to traditional database/data warehouse
  • Offers significant query speeds
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Provides MPP only for AWS-supported storages
  • Prerequisites for configuring tables are not easy
  • Not great for use with web apps
  • Lightning speed
  • Business is keen to use cloud-based products
  • Due diligence required for initial (migration) phase
Amazon Redshift is one of the fastest service offerings available in the market now. Plus you get an advantage of using a cutting edge compute service offering from AWS. Other technologies are fast but not as good as Amazon Redshift, I would say. Our business is interested in exploring technologies offered by a company in the form of stack unlike others which only concentrate on offering one of the services.
