Learn more » Amazon Redshift is a fast, simple, cost-effective data warehouse service that works with your existing analytics tools.Watch how, with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, you can deploy a fully functional data warehouse.
The "efficiency" is the speed at which they give up after being driven to distraction. With the help of Google, you can read any number of horror stories told by people who have had the misfortune of having to deal with companies, or Government departments, that outsource. OK, it's leasing the planes, a fairly common arrangement, but that’s about as much as anyone else will be involved with Prime Air.Dense Compute (DC) nodes allow you to create very high performance data warehouses using fast CPUs, large amounts of RAM and solid-state disks (SSDs).While resizing, Amazon Redshift allows you to continue to query your data warehouse in read-only mode until the new cluster is fully provisioned and ready for use.You can also use standard Postgre SQL JDBC and ODBC drivers.Amazon Redshift uses a variety of innovations to obtain very high query performance on datasets ranging in size from a hundred gigabytes to an exabyte or more.For petabyte-scale local data, it uses columnar storage, data compression, and zone maps to reduce the amount of I/O needed to perform queries.
Amazon Redshift has a massively parallel processing (MPP) data warehouse architecture, parallelizing and distributing SQL operations to take advantage of all available resources.
Amazon Redshift also includes Redshift Spectrum, allowing you to directly run SQL queries against exabytes of unstructured data in Amazon S3.
No loading or transformation is required, and you can use open data formats, including Avro, CSV, Grok, ORC, Parquet, RCFile, Regex Ser De, Sequence File, Text File, and TSV.
Amazon Redshift delivers fast query performance by using columnar storage technology to improve I/O efficiency and by parallelizing queries across multiple nodes.
Data load speed scales linearly with cluster size, with integrations to Amazon S3, Amazon Dynamo DB, Amazon EMR, Amazon Kinesis, and any SSH-enabled host. You can have unlimited number of users doing unlimited analytics on all your data for just $1000 per terabyte per year, 1/10th the cost of traditional data warehouse solutions.
The underlying hardware is designed for high performance data processing, using local attached storage to maximize throughput between the CPUs and drives, and a 10Gig E mesh network to maximize throughput between nodes.
