Amazon Redshift Review

Cost effective and stable, for the performance for larger applications needs to be improved

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case for this solution is related to statistical data.

What is most valuable?

The best part about this solution is the cost.

The performance of this solution is good if you have only a few use cases and a few queries, but for larger applications, it is not so good. 

What needs improvement?

Running parallel queries results in poor performance and this needs to be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for one year, and it has been used within the company for several years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable, although we have had some issues with maintenance.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of this solution needs to be improved.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have dealt with technical support and it is ok.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup of this solution is straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

The suitability of this solution depends on the environment and the requirements. For some, Amazon Redshift is perfect. However, some people will need better queries. Based on my research, many of the products are pretty close. It is possible that the much higher priced solutions have more differences.

This is a good solution but the queries need to perform better.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?
