Amazon Redshift announces Advisor, a new feature that provides automated recommendations to help you optimize database performance and decrease operating costs. Advisor is available via the Amazon Redshift console at no charge.

Advisor is like a personal database assistant that generates tailored recommendations related to database operations and cluster configuration based on analyzing your cluster's performance and usage metrics. Currently, Advisor can show up to seven recommendations to help you optimize your cluster. However, it displays only those recommendations that will have a significant impact for your workload. When Advisor determines that a recommendation has been addressed, it will be removed from your recommendation list. 

Advisor is accessible via the left-hand navigation menu on your Amazon Redshift console. On the Advisor page, simply select the cluster for which you want to see the recommendations. Do try out the Advisor today and provide feedback for each recommendation by clicking on the 'Was this useful?' button.
