Redash is designed to enable anyone, regardless of the level of technical sophistication, to harness the power of data — big and small. SQL users leverage Redash to explore, query, visualize, and share data from any data sources. Their work in turn enables anybody in their organization to use the data. Every day, millions of users at thousands of organizations around the world use Redash to develop insights and make data-driven decisions.
To enhance Redash data exploration and visualization with a high availability database, we will show the steps of deploying and working with Alibaba Cloud ApsaraDB RDS for PostgreSQL database.
Run the terraform script to initialize the resources (in this tutorial, we use RDS PostgreSQL as example data source for Redash, so ECS and RDS PostgreSQL instances are included in the Terraform script). Please specify the necessary information and region to deploy.
Please log on to ECS with
Then execute the following commands to setup the Redash.
mkdir /opt/redash wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/getredash/setup/master/setup.sh sh setup.sh
After the setup script execution finished, open the following URL in a Web browser to initialize Redash:
On the Redash main page, click
Connect a data source to add RDS PostgreSQL as a source database.
Input the RDS PostgreSQL instance connection string and port that we got in Step 1.
Then you can create
Dashboard or work with other BI features on Redash.
You can use Redash to connect to the following database types on Alibaba Cloud:
