Amazon Redshift data sharing enables you to efficiently share live data across Amazon Redshift data warehouses. Amazon Redshift now supports simplified governance of Amazon Redshift data sharing by enabling you to use AWS Lake Formation to centrally manage permissions on data being shared across your organization. With the new Amazon Redshift data sharing managed by AWS Lake Formation, you can view, modify, and audit permissions on the tables and views in the Redshift datashares using Lake Formation APIs and the AWS Console, and allow the Redshift datashares to be discovered and consumed by other Redshift data warehouses.

With Lake Formation managed data sharing, you now have better visibility and control of data shared within and across accounts in your organization. Help improve the security of your data by enabling security administrators to use Lake Formation to manage granular entitlements such as table-level, column-level, or row-level access to tables being shared in Redshift data sharing and Redshift external tables. With AWS Lake Formation managed data sharing, you can define policies once and enforce those consistently for multiple consumers.

This feature is available as a preview in the following AWS Regions: Asia Pacific (Tokyo), US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), Europe (Stockholm). To learn more, visit the Amazon Redshift database developer guide and blog.
