• Amazon Redshift is a data warehouse that provides enterprise-class relational database queries and management systems.
  • Tableau Server is used for business intelligence (BI), data visualization capabilities, and a Tableau Server sample dashboard that shows how to connect to multiple AWS data sources.
  • A sample dataset that is loaded to an Amazon Redshift cluster for efficient creation of large-scale aggregates. Developers have the option to load their own data.
  • Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), which is based on PostgreSQL, provides high-query-volume aggregate table that feed scale-out dashboards.

In a blog post, the company stated that you can either build a new VPC [Amazon Virtual Private Cloud] infrastructure, which is configured for security, scaleability, and high availability, OR use your existing VPC infrastructure to deploy the data warehouse. AWS CloudFormation templates simplify the deployment and allow customization options for instance types, network resources, and configurations for Amazon Redshift, PostgreSQL and Tableau Server. The Quick Start includes detailed information and step by step instructions. You can find more information in the “Data Warehouse Modernization on the AWS Cloud PDF.”
