Loading Data to Amazon Redshift Simply Cannot Get Any Easier

July 1, 2014

Amazon Redshift is one of the ultimate Cloud success stories.  Literally within minutes, a customer with nominal budget and resources can provision an enterprise-grade Data Warehouse, extract meaningful Business Intelligence, and start realizing a Competitive Advantage. 

To build upon the first-year market success of Amazon Redshift, AWS has introduced a ‘Free Trial’ program (http://aws.amazon.com/redshift/free-trial/).  At no charge and no risk, new customers can set out to assess the viability of Amazon Redshift. 

Needless to say, the value of a Data Warehouse is tied closely to the availability of incoming data and pursuant analytics.  And many recognize that supplying data to Amazon Redshift comes with well-known challenges, including the potential for manual processes – extracting, shipping, chopping, importing, etc. 

For customers looking to trial Amazon Redshift, or go live in production, Attunity is excited to introduce our solution designed for even faster setup and simplicity:
