Unlocking Business Success with Amazon SageMaker Studio and Redshift: A Comprehensive Review of Cross-Account Predictive Analysis

As Seen On

Machine Learning (ML) is no longer a foreign concept to businesses across all industries. Greater accessibility to compute power and data has thrust ML into the core aspect of many organizations, facilitating a myriad of data-driven practices that revolutionize existing business models. Central to this revolution are Amazon SageMaker Studio, an all-inclusive ML development environment, and Amazon Redshift, a fully managed, high-speed, cloud data warehouse.

Amazon SageMaker Studio stands as Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) characteristic response to the growing demand for end-to-end ML tools that can handle all phases of ML development. Simplified, intuitive, and versatile, it offers a full circle, visually rich environment that streamlines the task of creating, training, fine-tuning, and deploying ML models on any scale.

Parallelly, Amazon Redshift, renowned as the most widely used cloud data warehouse, offers a resilient, secure data storage solution. It combines swift and scalable computing with high-speed querying capabilities, enabling businesses to effortlessly explore valuable insights from their data.

The intersection of ML and data warehousing, powered by SageMaker Studio and Redshift respectively, opens up a new world of predictive analysis possibilities for businesses. However, the challenge arises when businesses operate these technologies from within separate AWS accounts for reasons ranging from security concerns to cost controls.

Modern businesses understand the importance of a multi-account architecture, which allows for common guardrails, isolation of environments, and enhanced governance without sacrificing the adaptability of individual teams. By residing Amazon SageMaker Studio and Redshift within Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) that have private subnets, organizations can achieve better control and security.

Further, Amazon Redshift caters to multi-account environments by natively supporting cross-account data sharing when deploying RA3 node types. This negates the need to duplicate data across different AWS accounts, maximizing efficiency and cost-effectiveness. For DS2 or DC2 node types where cross-account sharing is not natively supported, VPC peering can be employed, forming a secure and low-latency network connection.

Establishing a cross-account connection across any Amazon Redshift node type (RA3, DC2, DS2) involves several steps. Setting up SageMaker Studio in VPC Only mode is a viable starting point. This is followed by launching or selecting an Amazon Redshift cluster in an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), creating a VPC peering connection between the VPC for SageMaker and the VPC for Redshift, and configuring the security groups and the routing tables for the VPCs. Once the setup is complete, querying Amazon Redshift directly from SageMaker Studio becomes straightforward and efficient.

In this age of data-driven decision making, harnessing the combined power of Amazon SageMaker Studio and Amazon Redshift enables businesses to extract accurate predictions from vast data oceans. The path to cross-account predictive analysis may appear intricate on the surface but is substantially compensated by the potential business advantages – actual streamlining of ML workflows, enhanced security mechanisms, effective utilization of resources, and unleashing crucial actionable insights.

We encourage you to seek support in setting up or optimizing your AWS ecosystem to maximize the benefit of your ML initiatives.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
