Amazon Redshift RA3 nodes are now available in the Europe (Paris), Canada (Central), and Brazil (São Paulo) regions. RA3 nodes enable you to scale and pay for compute and storage independently allowing you to size your cluster based only on your compute needs. 

RA3 nodes are built on the AWS Nitro System and feature high bandwidth networking and large high performance SSDs as local caches. RA3 nodes with managed storage monitor your workload patterns and deploy adaptive data management techniques, such as automatic fine-grained data eviction and intelligent data pre-fetching, to deliver the performance of local SSD while scaling storage automatically to S3. RA3 nodes remain fully compatible with all your existing workloads. 

To learn more about RA3 nodes, see the cluster management guide. You can find more information on pricing by visiting the Amazon Redshift pricing page.

RA3 nodes are generally available in Asia Pacific (Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo), Brazil (São Paulo), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, Paris), US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), US West (N. California, Oregon).
