Effortlessly Manage Your Data with Yellowbrick
Take a quick tour of the Yellowbrick Data Warehouse, which offers exceptional query performance and throughput while operating at a fraction of the cost of other data warehouses.
This walkthrough explores the Yellowbrick Data Warehouse user interface and shows you how easy it is to set up and manage your data warehouse.
Getting Started with Yellowbrick
As you get started, you’ll notice that Yellowbrick is fast. With its unique data warehouse architecture, Yellowbrick can plow through billions of records in milliseconds.
The platform is designed to be user-friendly and intuitive. You can easily control everything through the SQL commands or the UI.
Yellowbrick’s massively parallel processing (MPP) database engine executes queries at high speeds using multiple nodes in a cluster, which operate independently of other clusters. Each virtual compute cluster provides independent compute resources that provide query execution services for the databases that belong to the instance. Clusters can be elastically scaled or shrunk at any time to optimize cost.
With Yellowbrick, you can view your data warehouse instance and monitor the status of your clusters. You can also create users and roles with specific privileges, modify access control on each database object, and view query activity.
Yellowbrick offers features such as access control, workload management, and a lightweight web-based query editor, as well as a load assistant for performing all loads into database tables using CSV and parquet files from network locations like Amazon S3 and Azure data lake.
With Yellowbrick, you can manage your business data with ease and efficiency, and the platform is constantly updating features to give you the best performance.
