Here are some of the technologies we can use to help you with your Amazon Redshift solutions.

Optimizing Redshift Performance with AWS SCT
Amazon introduced a feature called Redshift Optimization for the Schema Conversion Tool (SCT). You can now use AWS SCT to optimize your Redshift databases. For more information, see Optimizing Amazon Redshift by using the AWS Schema Conversion Tool.
Based on the experience of our Data Management Team, we came to the conclusion that if the performance of Redshift clusters is satisfying, using SCT’s recommendations will be sufficient for most customers. However, if cloud storage performance does not meet your requirements or expectations, you may launch the optimization of the Redshift data storage.
As a part of the Redshift optimization project, AWS SCT provides recommendations based on the selection of Distribution Keys and Style, as well as the best choice for the Sort Keys.
Essentially, the Redshift optimization project can be considered a regular AWS Schema Conversion Tool migration project with the source and target pointing to Redshift clusters. Here you have to make an important decision: whether to use a copy of the source cluster as a target or start the optimization project from scratch.
In the following video, we will demonstrate the essentials of using the Redshift Optimization to improve the query performance.
