Integration of Amazon Redshift Cloud Data Warehouse (AWS SaaS DWH) with Talend Data Integration (DI) / Big Data (BD) / Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)

Posted in Cloud, EAI, ESB on June 26th, 2013 by Kai Wähner

In this blog post, I will show you how to „ETL“ all kinds of data to Amazon’s cloud data warehouse Redshift wit Talend’s big data components. Let’s begin with a short introduction to Amazon Redshift (copied from website):

„Amazon Redshift is [part of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and] a fast and powerful, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service in the cloud. With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, customers can launch a Redshift cluster, starting with a few hundred gigabytes and scaling to a petabyte or more, for under $1,000 per terabyte per year.
Traditional data warehouses require significant time and resource to administer, especially for large datasets. In addition, the financial cost associated with building, maintaining, and growing self-managed, on-premise data warehouses is very high. Amazon Redshift not only significantly lowers the cost of a data warehouse, but also makes it easy to analyze large amounts of data very quickly.“

The „Unconference“ startet with some 5-minute Lightening-Talks (similar to “Pecha Kucha“). Some interesting theses were presented, e.g.:
