Your first step in using the Amazon Redshift data warehouse service is to launch an Amazon Redshift cluster, which consists of set of compute nodes. By default, Amazon Redshift creates one database with your cluster. You can create additional databases, as needed. After your cluster has been provisioned, you can upload your dataset and then perform data analysis queries by using the SQL-based tools and business intelligence applications that you are already familiar with.
This section walks you through the process of creating a cluster, creating database tables, uploading data, and testing queries. You will use the Amazon Redshift console to provision a cluster and to authorize necessary access permissions. You will then use the SQL Workbench client to connect to the cluster and create sample tables, upload sample data, and execute test queries.
