An Introduction to Amazon Redshift

Like any "big data" initiative, deploying and operating a data warehouse of any size used to be limited to only large enterprises with deep budgets for proprietary hardware and multi-year software licenses. Pay-as-you-go cloud products like Google's BigQuery and AWS's Amazon Redshift change all of that, putting a fully blown, fully managed data warehouse within reach of even the smallest business.

But do commodity costs equal cut-rate performance? Can even large enterprises rely on these for workloads that currently run out of commercial solutions like Oracle Exadata and Teradata? How is security and latency affected in a hybrid environment? In this article, we focus on Amazon Redshift, with an introduction into what it is (and is not), as well as how it compares with the costs, performance, support for third-party visualization tools, scale, and reliability.
