We are pleased to announce that the AWS Schema Conversion Tool (SCT) can now extract data from Teradata and Oracle data warehouses for direct import into Amazon Redshift. Amazon Redshift is a fast, fully managed, petabyte scale data warehouse that was designed for the cloud from the ground up. AWS SCT will run an analysis of your data warehouse, automate the schema conversion, apply the schema to the Amazon Redshift target and extract your warehouse data, regardless of volume. You can use Amazon S3 or Amazon Snowball to move your exports to the cloud, where Amazon Redshift can natively import the data for use.

The AWS Schema Conversion Tool makes it easy to migrate from commercial relational databases and data warehouses to open source based solutions in the cloud. For more information, please visit the AWS SCT product page and review the documentation. The latest version can be downloaded for Windows, Mac, Fedora, and Ubuntu.
