Amazon RedShift

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.

According to Amazon's website, 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.
