We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Redshift's Excel features are handy. Redshift spectrum allows you to directly query the data on an Excel sheet. Now, SQL Server also allows this, but Redshift has many more features.""This service can merge and integrate well with all databases.""Has a very user-friendly SQL editor and it's very easy to use the connectors.""I find the most valuable features to be the MPP style of processing, which mostly all of the data warehouses provide. The ability to integrate all other AWS services, such as NSS and S3, with little effort is very helpful. The service is well maintained, there are update patches frequently.""Setup is easy. It's a fast solution with machine learning features, good integration, and a good API.""Amazon Redshift is very fast. It has really good response times. It's very user-friendly.""The feature that we find most useful is the ability to do analytics on the fly.""The most valuable feature is the scalability, as it grows according to our needs."

Cons
"The refreshment rate of data reaching Redshift from other sources should be faster.""We recently moved from the DC2 cluster to the RA3 cluster, which is a different node type and we are finding some issues with the RA3 cluster regarding connection and processing. There is room for improvement in this area. We are in talks with AWS regarding the connection issues.""Planting is the primary key enforcement that should be improved.""Amazon should provide more cloud-native tools that can integrate with Redshift like Microsoft's development tools for Azure.""This solution lacks integration with non-AWS sources.""It takes a lot of time to ingest and update the data.""The OLAP slide and dice features need to be improved.""There is some missing functionality and sometimes it's so difficult to work in. We need to convert these functionalities using VACUUM inside Amazon Redshift and then it causes some complexity."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable. According to the RA3 cluster particularly, it provides 128 GB of storage with only four nodes. If you can manage your computations processes with the help of materialized views and proper queries. I think the IP clusters are very useful and overall fair for the price."
  • "This solution implements the pay-as-you-use model, so no license. Pricing could be cheaper."

    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 IntelliCloud provides data and analytic software as a service (SaaS). You can subscribe to Teradata Database, Aster Analytics, and/or Hadoop and receive complete setup and management of software and infrastructure – so that you can focus on business outcomes.

    IntelliCloud services are available with new deployment choices: Teradata IntelliFlex – our flagship enterprise data warehouse platform that we deploy and manage in our data centers – and public cloud infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) that we provision and manage.
