What is Redshift?
Redshift can be described as a fully-managed cloud-ready petabyte-scale data warehouse service that can be seamlessly integrated with business intelligence tools. Extraction, transformation, and load has to be done to make business smarter. To launch a cloud data warehouse, a set of nodes have to be launched called the Red Shift cluster. Regardless of the size of data, one can take advantage of fast query performance.
What is Google BigQuery?
It is a Google Cloud Platform to an enterprise data warehouse for analytics. It is good for analyzing the huge amount of data to meet big data processing requirements. The provided data is encrypted, durable, and highly available. It offers Exabyte-scale storage and petabyte-scale SQL queries. With the growth of business managing data becomes a tough task. This focus can be reshifted to analyze business-critical data. Dremel is a powerful query engine developed by Google that is used to execute queries in BigQuery.
