SheetDash + Redshift

SheetDash shipped with support for only MySQL and support for Postgres followed shortly. Since Amazon’s Redshift is based on Postgres, it was only a matter of time until SheetDash would support Redshift as well. Using the already available Postgres adapter for data sources within your project, you can now connect to your Redshift cluster.

What is Amazon Redshift and how does it help me? Redshift is Amazon’s solution to unifying all your data in one place so that querying across all your data sources becomes an absolute breeze. You can set up integrations from all your databases, Salesforce, Zendesk, and many other 3rd party platform to appear within one database in isolated schemas. Redshift lets you query across all different schemas to join up data for unprecedented insights and it is now available to power your dashboards directly via SheetDash.

Want to learn more about Redshift? For the best details on how Redshift works, go straight to the source and read more on the official site for Amazon AWS Redshift. Fair warning: it’s not cheap.

Want to start leveraging Redshift but don’t want to write your own integrations? Redshift can be painful and expensive to get started with if you choose to write your own integrations. Plus you would have to maintain all those syncs. If you would like to get started quickly (and have some money to spend) take a look at www.fivetran.com. They offer a SAAS solution to piping your data from many 3rd party sources directly to your Redshift cluster.
