Amazon Redshift is touted to deliver 10 times the performance at 1/10th the cost of the on-premises data warehouses that are commonly used today

BANGALORE, INDIA: Amazon.com's Amazon Web Service announced that Redshift, its petabyte-scale data warehouse service announced late last year, is now available. Users can provision a cluster from AWS Management Console.

Jeff Barr, AWS chief evangelist in a blog post on Amazon Web Services Blog writes: "You can start small (which, at data warehouse scale, means a couple of hundred gigabytes), and scale up to a petabyte or more. We designed Amazon Redshift to deliver 10 times the performance at 1/10th the cost of the on-premises data warehouses that are commonly used today. We used a number of techniques to do this including columnar data storage, advanced compression, and high-performance disk and network I/O.

Amazon has also priced the service very competitively.

"You can use the High Storage Extra Large (15 GiB of RAM, 4.4 ECU, and 2 TB of local attached compressed user data) for $0.85 per hour or the High Storage Eight Extra Large (120 GiB of RAM, 35 ECU, and 16 TB of local attached user data) for $6.80 per hour. With either instance type, you pay an effective price of $3,723 per terabyte per year for storage and processing. One Year and Three Year Reserved Instances are also available, pushing the annual cost per terabyte down to $2,190 and $999, respectively," he adds.

It is now available in US East (Northern Virginia), and will be available in other AWS Regions in the coming months.
