Step 6: Reset your environment - Amazon Redshift

Step 6: Reset your environment

In the previous steps, you have successfully created an Amazon Redshift cluster, loaded data into tables, and queried data using a SQL client such as Amazon Redshift query editor v2.

When you have completed this tutorial, we suggest that you reset your environment to the previous state by deleting your sample cluster. You continue to incur charges for the Amazon Redshift service until you delete the cluster.

However, you might want to keep the sample cluster running if you intend to try tasks in other Amazon Redshift guides or tasks described in Common database tasks.

To delete a cluster
  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon Redshift console at

  2. On the navigation menu, choose Clusters to display your list of clusters.

  3. Choose the examplecluster cluster. For Actions, choose Delete. The Delete cluster page appears.

  4. Confirm the cluster to be deleted, then choose Delete cluster.

On the cluster list page, the cluster status is updated as the cluster is deleted.
