AWS is excited to announce that Amazon Redshift has successfully completed the FedRAMP assessment and authorization process and has been added to our list of services covered under our US East/West FedRAMP Agency Authority to Operate (ATO) granted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). This is the first new service we’ve added to our FedRAMP program since getting our initial FedRAMP Agency ATO from HHS in May 2013.

With the addition of Redshift we now have six FedRAMP covered services in our US East/West FedRAMP package, including: EC2, VPC, S3, EBS, IAM and now Redshift.  The US East/West FedRAMP package has been updated so that all FedRAMP customers can assess, authorize, and use Redshift for their workloads. Redshift is not yet available in the GovCloud (US) region.

Amazon Redshift is a fast, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service that makes it simple and cost-effective to efficiently analyze all your data using your existing business intelligence tools. It is optimized for datasets ranging from a few hundred gigabytes to a petabyte or more.
