Amazon Web Services
We partner with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide cloud solutions for server, database, and application hosting and datawarehouse services. AWS enables ABM to host client solutions, providing managed, dedicated virtual server(s) configured as required and hosting the applications and databases of your choosing. With AWS we can provide highly secure, available, robust hosting services.
It also helps us to radically reduce your costs of data warehousing using Redshift.
Amazon Redshift is a fast, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service that makes it simple and cost-effective to efficiently analyze all your data using your existing business intelligence tools. It is optimized for data-sets ranging from a few hundred gigabytes to a petabyte or more and costs less than $1,000 per terabyte per year; a tenth the cost of traditional data warehousing solutions.
Features and Benefits
Redshift delivers fast query and I/O performance for virtually any size data-set using columnar storage technology and by paralleling and distributing queries across multiple nodes. Redshift is easy to use and automates the common administrative tasks associated with provisioning, configuring, monitoring, backing up, and securing a data warehouse. Powerful security is built-in and you can encrypt all your data and backups with a few clicks. Once provisioned, you can start loading data and running queries using the same SQL tools you use today.

Redshift has no upfront costs and you can pay as you go. Pricing is simple – you are charged an hourly rate based on the node type and the number of nodes in your cluster. You can get started with a single XL node, 2TB data warehouse for $0.85 per hour and prices scale linearly up to a petabyte or more. You can pay by the hour or use reserved instance pricing to lower your price to under $1,000 per TB per year.
