AWS RedShift

Amazon Redshift is one of the key big-data analytics related services in the Amazon Web Services technology stack. Redshift can handle thousands of Terabytes (petabyte) sized data in a clustered environment, and provides data warehouse as a service on Amazon Cloud platform. Redshift is one of the relatively easier services to learn for big data scale analytics – which means an easy gateway to your entry in the big data analytics world.

Most of the projects on Amazon cloud would host their data either in DynamoDB or RDS, but would eventually ship all their data in Redshift or EMR for analytics. Redshift is also a heavy-weight topic in AWS Certified Big Data Specialty exam.

Amazon Redshift is a managed data warehouse that allows you to analyze all your data using standard SQL and your existing Business Intelligence (BI) tools. Redshift uses query optimization, columnar storage, parallel execution, and high-performance disks to query petabytes of data in seconds. Redshift is valuable for companies that use SQL or existing BI tools and want to analyze large amounts of data with their existing tools. In this Lab, you will learn how to create, query, and resize a Redshift cluster.
