Introduction

Amazon Redshift is a fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service in the cloud.

An Amazon Redshift data warehouse is a collection of computing resources called nodes. These nodes are organized into a group called a cluster and each cluster runs an Amazon Redshift engine and contains one or more databases.

Setup

To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select Redshift.
