About Amazon Redshift

Redshift is a cloud storage service from Amazon.com Inc. Its heart is Redshift, a corporate-class RDBMS based on modified PostgreSQL 8.0.2. Redshift is optimized for business intelligence purposes, which assumes processing of complex queries and big data volumes.

Redshift’s high performance is achieved through a combination of MPP technology with column-based storage and extensive use of data compression.

Redshift managing is very easy: it takes a couple of minutes to create a database cluster or to increase database volume via dedicated AWS console. Most routine administrative operations (monitoring, maintenance, backup and security) are performed automatically.

Redshift has integrated data security features, such as encryption, cluster isolation mechanisms and logging of all API calls, connection attempts, queries and cluster modifications. Automatic backup and cluster state control mechanisms are used to increase fail-resistance. Redshift supports ODBC and JDBC standards for compatibility with various clients.
