This post will help you to load your data stored in PostgreSQL to Amazon Redshift. After doing this, you will be able to perform advanced analysis on Amazon Redshift, a system dedicated for analytics and is suitable for this kind of data.
Replicating PostgreSQL to any other database system is not a trivial task. Exporting a PostgreSQL database into CSV files using the pg_dump command and loading them into any other system is not enough. You also need to take care of the loading of new or updated data using a cron job that will constantly check for new updates in your tables. However, this process can be extremely slow, and it becomes unusable if latency is an important factor. In addition, depending on the selected destination, the data loading process can be significantly different.
If you don’t want to deal with that hassle, you can simplify the process of syncing data from PostgreSQL to Amazon Redshift by using RudderStack, which does all the heavy lifting in just a few clicks so that you can focus on what matters: the exploration and analysis of your company’s data.
