Recommended Redshift-2-Delta Migration Path

Lonnie

Hello All!

My team is previewing Databricks and are contemplating the steps to take to perform one-time migrations of datasets from Redshift to Delta. Based on our understandings of the tool, here are our initial thoughts:

  • Export data from Redshift-2-S3 (UNLOAD) as compressed (CSV)
  • Map S3 bucket to Databricks environment
  • For each table, run CREATE TABLE statements, with the CSV data as the source; also stores in Delta format
  • Validate and then remove the temporary CSV data files

Has anyone else undertaken this effort (or similar)? Thanks in advance for your thoughts and feedback!
