Overview

This lab provides an overview of Amazon Redshift. In this lab, you will launch and work with an Amazon Redshift cluster to analyze USA Domestic flight data.

Amazon Redshift is a fast, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service that makes it simple and cost-effective to efficiently analyze all your data using your existing business intelligence tools. It is optimized for datasets ranging from a few hundred gigabytes to a petabyte or more and costs less than $1,000 per terabyte per year, a tenth the cost of most traditional data warehousing solutions.

Amazon Redshift delivers fast query and I/O performance for virtually any size dataset by using columnar storage technology and parallelizing and distributing queries across multiple nodes. We’ve made Amazon Redshift easy to use by automating most of the common administrative tasks associated with provisioning, configuring, monitoring, backing up, and securing a data warehouse.
