Amazon Redshift Review

Has good data updates and latency between data-refreshes

What is our primary use case?

My primary use for Amazon Redshift is for analytical purposes.

What is most valuable?

In terms of valuable features, I like the columnar storage that Redshift provides. The storage is one of the key features that we're looking for. Also, the data updates and the latency between the data-refreshes are valuable.

What needs improvement?

Pricing is one of the concerns that I have because if you compare Snowflake with Redshift, it provides some of the same services, but at a much cheaper rate. So pricing is one of the things that it could improve. It should be more competitive.

Otherwise, everything else looks good, especially the data storage and analytical processes.

For how long have I used the solution?

I just started using Amazon Redshift. I'm still learning about the product and about how the pricing and the dynamic skilling are done.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I understand that Amazon Redshift is quite stable and it has features like higher readability. So I think it should be a good product to be used.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not been in touch with support but I will be needing their support in the near future to help me set up the environment.

How was the initial setup?

In terms of the initial setup, as I said I've still not started using it, so I pray that it's going to be pretty easy for me to set it up.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Of course I would advise others to choose Amazon Redshift, as long as pricing is not a concern for them.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of 1 - 10, where 1 is the worst and 10 is the best, I'd give it an 8.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
