Amazon QuickSight Standard Edition was launched in November 2016 to provide an easy means of big data analytics. Now, AWS is launching its Enterprise Edition, which adds two features: Active Directory Integration and Encryption at Rest.
Enterprise edition uses AWS Managed Microsoft Active Directory (AD) to authenticate users. Users may sign on to QuickSight with credentials that are already logged into the MS Active Direotry hosted in AWS or on-premise. Also available is the SSO (single sign-on) feature, which lets users start working sooner with less administrative work involved.
All in all, the system allows you to enter thousands of user accounts and manage them with minimal effort.
SPICE for Amazon QuickSight
QuickSight also uses SPICE (Super-fast, Parallel, In-memory Calculation Engine) for highly-scalable big data analytics. To further protect your data, the Enterprise Edition encrypts data at rest within SPICE with keys provided by Amazon.
Amazon Quicksight Enterprise Edition is now available US East (Northern Virginia) Region. SPICE capacity is available to the US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Oregon), and EU (Ireland) Regions only for now. Pricing can be found here.
