Is quick, easy to upgrade, and cost-effective
South Africa must significantly improve its internet infrastructure to reduce its high costs. I believe South Africa is one of the most expensive countries in the world when it comes to obtaining high-speed internet connections. We need to establish different service level agreements with clients to ensure we have backup lines and redundancy. The crucial question we need to ask ourselves is, how reliable do we want our internet connection to be? In the case of using cloud services, it's essential to have another line as a backup in case the primary one fails. In our situation, having a backup line is definitely necessary, but it also adds to the expenses. For a major bank like ours, relying on a single connection to the cloud is not feasible; we must have a second line in place to ensure uninterrupted service in case of any issues with the primary line. The cost of Teradata Cloud Data Warehouse has room for improvement.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"You can copy JSON to the column and have it analyzed using simple functions."
"Redshift COPY command, because much of my work involved helping customers migrate large amounts of data into Redshift."
"Redshift is a major service of Amazon and is very scalable. It enables faster recalculations and data management, helping to retrieve data quickly."
"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."
"For the on-premises version of Amazon Redshift, we need to start from scratch. However, with the cloud version whenever you want to deploy, you can scale up, and down, and it has a data warehousing capability. Redshift has many features."
"The solution's flexibility is its most valuable feature. It's also easy to scale and has relatively painless pricing."
"The product offers good support for the data lake."
"Amazon Redshift is very fast. It has really good response times. It's very user-friendly."
"The cloud is ten times better than physical hardware; it is more cost-effective and the upgrade process is ten times easier."
"The product is reliable."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of running queries."


"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."
"They should provide a better way to work with interim data in a structured way than to store it in parquet files locally."
"There are too many limitations with respect to concurrency."
"The initial setup is a complex process, especially for someone who is not familiar with nodes and configuring terms like RPUs."
"Amazon should provide more cloud-native tools that can integrate with Redshift like Microsoft's development tools for Azure."
"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 is difficult to work with unstructured data and JSON documents."
"Planting is the primary key enforcement that should be improved."
"It could be a bit more user-friendly."
"The cost of Teradata Cloud Data Warehouse has room for improvement."
"Stability-wise, we have had some issues with automation and the ability to handle large datasets."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"At the moment, pricing is a little bit on the higher side, although it depends on the size of the company."
"Per hour pricing is helpful to keep the costs of a pilot down, but long-term retention is expensive."
"Redshift is very cost effective for a cloud based solution if you need to scale it a lot. For smaller data sizes, I would think about using other products."
"The cost must be improved."
"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."
"The part that I like best is that you only pay for what you are using."
"The product is cheap considering what it provides; I rate it five out of five for affordability."
"BI is sold to our customer base as a part of the initial sales bundle. A customer may elect to opt for a white labeled site for an up-charge."
"Teradata used to be expensive, but they have been lowering their prices."
