Quickly get started on an optimized Redshift database with Periscope Data's guide.
At Periscope Data we’ve tried all kinds of databases in search of speed, from custom hardware to cloud storage. Despite everything we tried, Amazon Redshift won out each time. We even built our Cache on it. Suffice to say, we have a lot of experience with it and have developed expert opinions around optimal setups. There are two aspects of Redshift we really appreciate: columnar storage and distributed architecture.
