Interactive Analytics: Redshift vs Snowflake vs BigQuery

Periscope's evaluations of data warehouse technologies are always must-reads. They did an evaluation of Periscope vs Redshift in early 2015 that was hugely influential, and now they're back with more.

My belief is still that Snowflake and BigQuery are more optimal for most internal BI use cases but this was excellent data nonetheless.
