We are delighted to announce cross region ingestion and improved query functionality for Amazon Redshift, a fast, easy-to-use, petabyte-scale data warehouse service in the cloud that costs as little as $1,000/TB/Year. Customers can now COPY data directly into Amazon Redshift from an Amazon S3 bucket or Amazon DynamoDB table that is not in the same region as the Amazon Redshift cluster. We've also launched new numeric SQL functions, greatest and least, as well as new window functions, percentile_cont and percentile_disc, for more advanced analytics. These features will be rolling out to all new and existing Amazon Redshift customers over the next week, during maintenance windows.

To get started with Amazon Redshift, please visit our detail page. To learn more about recently released features, please visit the Developer Guide and the Management Guide history.
