AWS announces support for Amazon Redshift in AWS Backup, making it easier for you to centrally manage data protection of your Amazon Redshift data warehouse. You can now use AWS Backup to schedule and restore Redshift manual snapshots. Further, your backups can provide enhanced data protection with immutability, improved security with separate backup access policies, and better governance by centralizing backup and recovery.

To get started with AWS Backup for Amazon Redshift, you can use the AWS Management console, API, or CLI by creating backup policies. You assign Amazon Redshift resources to the policies, and AWS Backup automates the creation of backups of Amazon Redshift, storing the backups in an encrypted backup vault. Using AWS Backup for Amazon Redshift gives you the option to schedule cluster level manual snapshots, which are full backups, and restore a table to the existing cluster or a cluster to a new cluster with a few clicks, simplifying data recovery.

AWS Backup support for Amazon Redshift will be available in US East (N Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (North California), US West (Oregon), Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Jakarta), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Osaka), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London), EU (Milan), EU (Paris), EU (Stockholm), Middle East (Bahrain), South America (Sao Paulo), AWS GovCloud (US-West), and AWS GovCloud (US-East) Regions.
