It's also easy to scale and has relatively painless pricing.""The initial setup of this solution is straightforward.""The product is relatively easy to use because there is no indexing and no partitions.""In terms of valuable features, I like the columnar storage that Redshift provides.

Cons
"In the next release, a pivot function would be a big help. It could save a lot of time creating a query or process to handle operations.""Compatibility with other products, for example, Microsoft and Google, is a bit difficult because each one of them wants to be isolated with their solutions.""The speed of the solution and its portability needs improvement.""Running parallel queries results in poor performance and this needs to be improved.""The product could be improved by making it more flexible.""Pricing is one of the things that it could improve. It should be more competitive.""It would be useful to have an option where all of the data can be queried at once and then have the result shown.""It takes a lot of time to ingest and update the data."

More Amazon Redshift Cons »

"I would like to see an improved Knowledge Base on the web.""The user interface needs to be improved.""An additional feature I would you like to see included in the next release, is that it needs to be more cloud-friendly.""I'm not sure about the unstructured data management capabilities. It could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's around $200 US dollars. There are some data transfer costs but it's minimal, around $20.""The best part about this solution is the cost.""The part that I like best is that you only pay for what you are using.""My customers have implementations that cost about $500 a month for a very small one. I also have a customer with a monthly invoice of about $25,000 USD.""At the moment, pricing is a little bit on the higher side, although it depends on the size of the company."

Overview

Amazon Redshift is a fast and powerful, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service in the cloud. Customers can start small for just $0.25 per hour with no commitments or upfront costs and scale to a petabyte or more for $1,000 per terabyte per year, less than a tenth of most other data warehousing solutions.

Traditional data warehouses require significant time and resource to administer, especially for large datasets. In addition, the financial cost associated with building, maintaining, and growing self-managed, on-premise data warehouses is very high. Amazon Redshift not only significantly lowers the cost of a data warehouse, but also makes it easy to analyze large amounts of data very quickly.

Amazon Redshift gives you fast querying capabilities over structured data using familiar SQL-based clients and business intelligence (BI) tools using standard ODBC and JDBC connections. Queries are distributed and parallelized across multiple physical resources. You can easily scale an Amazon Redshift data warehouse up or down with a few clicks in the AWS Management Console or with a single API call. Amazon Redshift automatically patches and backs up your data warehouse, storing the backups for a user-defined retention period. Amazon Redshift uses replication and continuous backups to enhance availability and improve data durability and can automatically recover from component and node failures. In addition, Amazon Redshift supports Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), SSL, AES-256 encryption and Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) to protect your data in transit and at rest.

As with all Amazon Web Services, there are no up-front investments required, and you pay only for the resources you use. Amazon Redshift lets you pay as you go. You can even try Amazon Redshift for free.

Teradata's portfolio of big data analytic solutions, integrated marketing applications, and services help organizations gain a sustainable competitive advantage with data.
