I am very happy with what RedShift has. So far, anything that I have required has been there and whatever use case I have faced, the functionality is available. My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to look into what certifications are available and which ones are required for different roles. Depending on the job, different certifications are relevant or required. For example, as a business analyst, a coding certification would not be useful for me and it would be a waste of money. These things should all be considered before beginning with any certifications. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

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

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.

We use public and hybrid cloud deployment models. We are Amazon partners. The solution itself is very popular. Many people use it these days. I recently went to an AWS summit in Zurich. I was very impressed by AWS and the presentation. Their solutions are very good. I'd rate this solution eight out of ten.
