After you have uploaded your data, create a database. Databases contain one or more tables of data.
This article shows you how to create a database.
Why do I need to create a database?
Create a database so you can create a table and load your data to the table. Upon data license approval in a project, a copy of tables referenced in a data package can be provided in a Workspace for analysis by authorized users. Users in a workspace can connect to a redshift database to query tables and analyze data using tools such as SQL Workbench, python or R.
