Australian AWS customers will now be able to integrate Cloud and on premise systems with Redshift via Eight Wire's SaaS data integration platform.
Amazon Redshift is a fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse solution that makes it simple and cost-effective to efficiently analyse data using existing business intelligence tools.
Built on massive parallel processing hardware, Redshift can scale to enormous sizes to deliver timely results to support business intelligence requirements.
Traditionally, companies relied on developers writing code or using integration packages to write complex transfer logic.
With Conductor, a single analyst can synchronise and migrate thousands of tables with little effort and data errors are fixed automatically.
Integrating data with Redshift is especially difficult because it requires other AWS applications to store and transform data prior to loading.
Because Conductor is location and platform agnostic, all major databases can be integrated with Redshift wherever they reside. The logic required to store and transform data is done behind the scenes, so developers can deliver faster than before.
Eight Wire business director, Jason Gleason, said the biggest hurdle facing companies moving to Redshift was integrating their existing data sets with the platform.
"With Conductor, this is no longer a worry since the application automates almost all of the manual work," he said.
"Eight Wire customers are moving hundreds of tables with a few mouse clicks and shifting major systems over in a fraction of the time it has taken in the past."
Moving to new database platforms usually requires large teams of developers and projects were infamous for blowing budgets.
With Conductor, the vast majority of manual effort in mapping data from the source to destination is done automatically. An analyst simply tells the application where the data is and where it is going to go, and Conductor does the rest.
