Here’s the difference between Redshift and Lightdash. The comparison is based on pricing, deployment, business model, and other important factors.
Amazon Redshift is a fully managed petabyte scale data warehouse service. Redshift is designed for analytic workloads and connects to standard SQL based clients and business intelligence tools. Redshift delivers fast query and I/O performance for virtually any size dataset by using columnar storage technology and parallelizing and distributing queries across multiple nodes. Most common administrative tasks associated with provisioning, configuring, monitoring, backing up, and securing a data warehouse are automated.
Lightdash removes the gap between your data transformation layer and your data visualization layer. It enables data analysts and engineers to control all of their business intelligence (data transformations/business logic as well as data visualization) in a single place. Lightdash integrates with your dbt project and gives a framework for defining metrics and specifying joins between models all within your existing dbt YAML files. The data output from your dbt project is then available for exploring and sharing in Lightdash.
