Automated Cross-Region Snapshot Copy for Amazon Redshift

by Jeff Barr | on | in Amazon Redshift |

As part of our plan to make it even easier for you to build and run AWS applications that have a global footprint, I am happy to announce that Amazon Redshift now has the ability to automatically back up your cluster to a second AWS region!

You simply select the second region and the desired retention period; Redshift will take care of the rest:

Once you enable this feature, Redshift will make subsequent snapshots available in the second region.
