Amazon Redshift serves customers across a variety of industries and sizes, from startups to large enterprises. Customers use Amazon Redshift as a replacement for traditional data warehouse platforms to improve performance and lower costs. Amazon Redshift Spectrum enables you to extend the analytic power of Amazon Redshift beyond data stored on local disks in your data warehouse to query vast amounts of unstructured data in your Amazon S3 “data lake” -- without having to load or transform any data. Customers also use Amazon Redshift in combination with Amazon Elastic MapReduce as a faster, cheaper, and fully SQL-compliant alternative to Apache Hive to analyze large data sets in big data use cases.
