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.
