Amazon Redshift and Tableau Software are two powerful technologies in a modern analytics toolkit. Combined, they form a data warehousing and analytics solution that allows users to analyze datasets, running into the billions of rows, with speed and agility to drive better business outcomes. They are integrated out-of-the-box, so you can connect Tableau to your Amazon Redshift data warehouse with minimal time or effort. It’s important to understand how to optimize when integrating the two together, and doing so can yield considerable performance gains and ultimately shorten deployment cycles.
This paper introduces infrastructure advice as well as tips and hints to make the joint solution more efficient and performant.
