Enable Cross-region Snapshots


AWS Redshift supports automated cross-region snapshots, which can contribute to a robust disaster recovery plan for your Redshift clusters. Cross-region snapshots eliminate the need to self-manage the replication of snapshots in a secondary region.

For further information about AWS Redshift Cross-Region Snapshots refer to the AWS Redshift documentation.


Enable Amazon Redshift Cross-Region Snapshots to provide a redundant source of snapshots and increase the availability of your backups.
