Shutting down and deleting clusters

You can shut down your cluster if you want to stop it from running and incurring charges. When you shut it down, you can optionally create a final snapshot. If you create a final snapshot, Amazon Redshift will create a manual snapshot of your cluster before shutting it down. You can later restore that snapshot if you want to resume running the cluster and querying data.

If you no longer need your cluster and its data, you can shut it down without creating a final snapshot. In this case, the cluster and data are deleted permanently. For more information about shutting down and deleting clusters, see Deleting a cluster.

Regardless of whether you shut down your cluster with a final manual snapshot, all automated snapshots associated with the cluster will be deleted after the cluster is shut down. Any manual snapshots associated with the cluster are retained. Any manual snapshots that are retained, including the optional final snapshot, are charged at the Amazon Simple Storage Service storage rate if you have no other clusters running when you shut down the cluster, or if you exceed the available free storage that is provided for your running Amazon Redshift clusters. For more information about snapshot storage charges, see the Amazon Redshift pricing page.

Deleting a cluster also deletes any associated Amazon Secrets Manager secrets.
