We use Redshift for data warehousing and Periscope for visualizations. These tools are enterprise-scaled and allow you to collect raw data and do whatever you want with that.

Redshift is a data warehousing service through AWS. It is customizable, cheap and easy to use. It is a great product from Amazon.

For a while we used a service called Redshift that is part of Segment. This service allows you to store all your events in a database and connect to to give you historical analytics. It was pretty powerful but ended up being too expensive so we discontinued it.

Amazon Redshift - Best Developer Tools for Startups

Amazon Redshift is a data warehouse that stores all of your analytics data for easy access and SQL queries. With no upfront costs, Amazon Redshift gives you instant access to your stored data, and handles much of the headache that comes with managing that information, like backups, patch upgrades and encryption. Amazon Redshift is simply a platform for storing your data, not gathering or analyzing it, so it’s most frequently used in conjunction with other analytics tools like Google Analytics and Mixpanel to gather the data, and visualization tools like Tableau or Chartio.

How startups use Amazon Redshift?

Amazon Redshift’s basic service can be applied to almost any analytics tool and can store a staggering amount of data (1.6 PB), making it useful to data-focused startups of all sizes.

How much does Amazon Redshift cost?

Amazon Redshift has multiple pricing plans depending how much data you store, the type of data and the length of your term. On Demand pricing requires no upfront payment and no time commitment, instead charging you per hour for as long as you store your data. These plans can run anywhere from $0.25/hour to $6.80/hour or more, depending on how much data you have and the location of your business. Reserved Instance pricing commits you to a one- or three-year term, and includes either no, partial or full upfront payment. The more you’re willing to pay upfront, and the longer you’re willing to commit, the more you’ll save. For example, a full upfront payment on a three-year term is a quarter of the price of the equivalent On Demand plan.
