You can now use multibyte (UTF-8) characters in Amazon Redshift table, column, and other database object names. For more information, see Names and Identifiers in the Amazon Redshift Database Developer Guide. To support this new feature, we have updated the Amazon Redshift ODBC and JDBC drivers. The driver updates include support for multibyte characters and other enhancements.

If you would like to distribute the Amazon Redshift ODBC and JDBC drivers to your customers or other third parties, please contact us at so we can provide you an appropriate no-cost license.
