AWS releases QuickSight Data Visualization and BI Service

Amazon Web Services today announced that Amazon QuickSight is now generally available to all customers. AWS QuickSight allows users to build visualizations, perform ad-hoc analysis and get business insights from their data. The cloud-based analytics service lets people build visualizations, perform ad-hoc analysis, and get business insights from their data. All queries in QuickSight will be run using technology called SPICE (Super-fast, Parallel, In-memory Calculation Engine). Users can connect data in existing repositories or upload new data to AWS. Data can be stored in different services and locations, including AWS services like Relational Database Service, Aurora, Redshift and S3. QuickSight can also access data stored in MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Server databases, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, Salesforce and other services.

Amazon QuickSight is free for one user and one GB of SPICE capacity. The Standard Edition of Amazon QuickSight starts at $9 per user per month, includes 10 GB of SPICE capacity, and is now available in US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), and EU (Ireland) and will expand to additional Regions in the coming months. The Enterprise Edition of Amazon QuickSight includes all Standard Edition features as well as support for Active Directory integration and encryption at rest and will be available in the coming weeks.
