Amazon Quicksight now in General Availability!
Late last night, Amazon announced that their proprietary AWS data visualisation tool, Quicksight was now generally available in the US and Ireland. Quicksight aims to be a PowerBI-esque drag and drop visualisation tool, that allows you to access your data from AWS (and other sources) in seconds, regardless of scale. I’ve had a very quick go this morning, and visualised some data from a modest 1TB Redshift cluster after just a few minutes. The biggest challenge was finding out the correct IP range for Quicksight to enable access to my VPC (Thank you serverfault).
