We're delighted to announce Cross-Region Snapshots for Amazon Redshift. Starting today, you can have your Redshift cluster automatically backed up to a second AWS Region. Once you enable this feature, Amazon Redshift will automatically, continuously and incrementally backup your cluster to two AWS Regions, giving you additional options for business continuity. You can choose the retention period for automated snapshots; user snapshots are retained until you explicitly delete them.

To learn more, please visit the Amazon Redshift detail page and the Amazon Redshift documentation.
