The View From The Cloud With Amazon Redshift

SnapLogic continues to celebrate our partnership with Amazon Web Services with a variety of in-person and online events. The SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform helps customers integrate Amazon database services with any other data source in the cloud, on-premises or in hybrid mode, for faster, more effective decision-making.

On July 22 we are very pleased to co-present a webinar with Amazon titled “Weathering the Data Storm: How SnapLogic and AWS Delivered Analytics in the Cloud for Earth Networks.” Our mutual customer, Earth Networks, will share their story of moving to a self-service cloud for data integration, preparation and analytics.

We’re also a proud sponsor of several regional AWS Summits. Last week we participated in the Chicago event, and we’ll be at the New York City event on July 9. These have been great opportunities to talk with members of the growing AWS community and share how companies are using SnapLogic with cloud-based database services.

At these events and on our website we have been showcasing our Amazon Redshift integration. This integration helps customers quickly transfer up to petabytes of data into and out of Redshift. Data can be moved at any latency, giving customers the flexibility to handle a variety of use cases. We’re currently offering a free trial for Redshift, where users can log in and begin loading data right away.

Please check out the trial and let us know what you think.

#AWSSummit Hits New York: A @SnapLogic Perspective

SnapLogic_booth_AWS_SummitLast week the SnapLogic team was in New York for the AWS Summit. It was a fantastic event, with amazing energy. For me the words that came up over and over with people I spoke with at the booth were:

  • Innovation
  • Change
  • Disruption
  • …and Crowded (it was a record turnout!)

Not surprisingly, we spent most of our time talking to AWS customers, partners and prospects about everything related to data, data and application integration, data warehousing and cloud analytics. I found that when people saw some of the logos on our sign (see above) of vendors for whom we also deliver pre-built connectivity, called Snaps, the conversations deepened. I’ve compiled a Storify summary of some of the highlights from the keynote, tweets featuring Amazon Redshift, which is the fastest-growing new product line in the company’s history, and of course the perspective from the SnapLogic booth, which was packed throughout the day. I’ve embedded it below:

Thanks to the AWS team for a great event! Here are some additional resources on how SnapLogic powers AWS Redshift:

Redshift Data Integration and @SnapLogic Free Trial at AWS Summit

Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 12.33.27 PMIf you’re attending this Thursday’s AWS Summit in New York and are interested in data warehousing and data integration, come say hi to the SnapLogic team! You can find us at booth #332 where we’ll be talking Redshift integration in the elastic enterprise (and how you can get started with our free trial for Amazon Redshift). We’ll also be showing demonsrations of the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform in action.

For those not as familiar with Amazon Redshift, it is a fast, fully managed petabyte-scale data warehouse service offered at one tenth the price of most traditional warehouse solutions. SnapLogic’s Amazon Redshift integration solution enables customers to transfer data into and out of Amazon Redshift – also at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions. With SnapLogic, data can be moved at any latency (batch, streamed, or via event-based real-time triggers) to meet the requirements of a diverse set of users. Additionally, SnapLogic offers pre-built connectors, called Snaps, to over 160+ different data sources including on-premises applications like traditional ERP and financial applications to social media, mobile and machine data. The goal is to easily and rapidly extract data from its various sources and formats and load it into Amazon Redshift and keep data synchronized with other systems at a significant cost savings for the customer.

Redshift trialWe also offer Snap Patterns for Amazon Redshift, allowing organizations to rapidly load and synchronize data from sources such as Oracle, MySQL, SQL Server and PostgreSQL directly into Redshift. The Redshift Snap Patterns are ideal for organizations considering Redshift as a low-cost, faster alternative to traditional data warehousing, and include:

  • Data Loading: Accelerate the initial data load or refresh.
  • Periodic Data Sync: Determine the frequency of delta data synchronization.
  • Data Aggregation: Bring data together from multiple sources for the purposes of cloud data warehousing.
  • Slowly Changing Dimension Type 2 (SCD2): Handle powerful transformation tasks with a few clicks.

Full AWS Summit event registration is closed but you can register for the Keynote Live Stream here to tune in. And here are a few options if you can’t make it, but want to see the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform in action:

For a general AWS Redshift and SnapLogic overview as well as best practices from our partner Cervello, I’ve embedded the slides from a recent webinar we hosted below. See you in NYC!

Fast Just Got Faster: Snap Patterns Accelerate Integrations, Starting with Amazon Redshift

The SnapLogic team is very excited to announce our new SnapLogic Integration Cloud Free Trial for Amazon Redshift at the AWS Summit in San Francisco. Built on the the most recent innovation from SnapLogic called Snap Patterns, which are are pre-built packaged integrations that customers can configure through a step-by-step wizard, our goal is to help you accelerate your time to value with AWS Redshift by as much as 10x. There’s no coding necessary!

The free trial comes with Snap Patterns for some commonly recurring data integration requirements for Amazon Redshift that are common challenges for cloud data warehousing customers. For starters, the Redshift Loader Patterns take away the complexity of the initial load from Amazon RDS for MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server and PostgreSQL into Amazon Redshift. Users of the SnapLogic Snap Patterns can then use MicroStrategy, Qlikview, Tableau, Tidemark or other leading business intelligence (BI) tools to run analytics and visualize their data in Redshift.

SnapLogic Free Trial for Amazon RedshiftSnap Patterns for Amazon Redshift allow organizations to:

  • Accelerate cloud data warehouse adoption with prebuilt patterns that can be configured by an automatically-generated series of steps.

  • Rapidly connect Amazon Redshift to a variety of relational database services including Amazon RDS for MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle and SQL Server.

  • Quickly load data into an Amazon S3 bucket and kick off the Amazon Redshift import process in a single step.

  • Easily replicate source tables into their Amazon Redshift clusters and detect daily changes to keep data synchronized.

  • Take advantage of core REST and SOAP Snaps for broader connectivity.

  • Visually design a variety of data operations using a set of core Snaps such as Binary, Flow, Script, Transform and XML.

  • Do sophisticated extract, transform and load (ETL) operations such as slowly changing dimensions type 2 (SCD2) and database lookups without any coding.

  • Start with a free trial of an easy to use wizard and upgrade to the full SnapLogic integration platform as a service (iPaaS) in order to connect to data from Salesforce.com, Teradata, Netezza, SAP, Oracle ERP and other systems without losing any of their existing work.
