A couple of interesting points from Werner Vogels’s post about Amazon Redshift’s security:
- Amazon Redshift has over 1000 customers and adding new ones at a rate of 100/week. I’m not familiar with customer acquisition numbers in the data warehouse space, but this doesn’t look like ParAccel, at least in its Redshift incarnation, is failing
- Amazon Redshift positioning: “price, performance and simplicity”. I cannot see many companies being able to compete against this triplet.
- Amazon has reduced the cost of read operations from DynamoDB to 1/4 to make that data more accessible to Redshift
