Data Warehouse
Analytics are important for your business, but building traditional data warehouses are often complex and expensive, take months to set up and can cost millions in software and hardware expenses. 2nd Watch leverages Amazon Redshift to offer a fast, fully managed, petabyte scale data warehouse solution that makes it simple and cost-effective to efficiently analyze all your data using your existing business intelligence tools, scale to meet your provisioning needs – without downtime or loss of speed – and backup and restore copies of your data warehouse. Now you can shift your focus from query and data management to turning data into information and making better business decisions, faster. Learn More
Automation
By design, cloud native applications are fully automated and can autonomously handle scaling needs and withstand failures. Designed for change, automation of cloud-native apps happens at the application level, vs. the infrastructure level. Cloud native applications scale horizontally, instead of vertically, so that you don’t need to rely on the autoscaling capabilities of your application’s underlying infrastructure. That means your application’s high-performance, large-scale, or high-availability requirements are continuously met through thorough lifecycle management automation. With application automation, you can shift your focus from infrastructure management to iterating quickly, getting to market first, and differentiating your business from its competitors. Learn More
Social Media
Businesses around the world are running their social media networks and applications in the cloud to lower costs, improve time-to-market, and enable rapid scalability. The viral nature of social media causes some networks and applications to grow rapidly. 2nd Watch’s designed-for-change deployments make it easy for you to respond to rapid growth or unexpected demand, with the ability to deploy 1000s of virtual machines in minutes. You can choose the development platform and programming model you’re most familiar with, deploy applications without having to wait for hardware to arrive and pay only for the cloud resources you use. This allows you to shift your focus from infrastructure management to feature enhancements that benefit your customers. Learn More

EASY TO USE
Powered by Amazon Redshift, 2nd Watch’s data warehouse architecture automates most of the common administrative tasks associated with provisioning, configuring, monitoring, backing up, and securing a data warehouse, making it very easy and inexpensive to manage and maintain. This automation allows you to build a petabyte-scale data warehouse in minutes, a task that has traditionally taken weeks, or months, to complete in an on-premises implementation.
scalable icon
HIGHLY SCALABLE
Analyzing large data sets requires significant compute capacity that can vary in size based on the amount of input data and the analysis required. With 2nd Watch, you can provision more capacity and compute in a matter of minutes, meaning that your big data applications grow and shrink as demand dictates, and your system runs as close to optimal efficiency as possible. In addition, you get flexible computing on a world-class infrastructure with access to many different geographic regions along with the ability to utilize other scalable clouds.
cloud cost
LOWER COST
With 2nd Watch, storing your data in the public cloud requires no long-term commitments or upfront costs. This frees you from the capital expense and complexity of planning and purchasing data warehouse capacity ahead of your needs. Charges are based on the size and number of nodes of your cluster. There is no additional charge for backup storage up to 100% of your provisioned storage.
cloud security
SECURE
Public cloud providers like AWS maintain highly secure data centers that use state of the art security and multi-factor access control systems that protect your organization’s infrastructure and the privacy of your customers. Set your parameter settings to use SSL to secure data in transit and hardware-accelerated encryption for data at rest, configure firewall rules to control network access to your data warehouse cluster and/or integrate with other web services to audit all your API calls. No matter how you wish to secure your big data warehouse, 2nd Watch’s big data workload solutions automatically log and audit all API calls, connection attempts, queries and changes to the cluster giving you peace of mind that your data is safe and secure.
