Step 7: Find additional resources and reset your environment

When you have completed this tutorial, you can go to other Amazon Redshift resources to learn more about the concepts introduced in this guide. You can also reset your environment to the previous state. You might want to keep the sample cluster running if you intend to try tasks in other Amazon Redshift guides. However, remember that you continue to be charged for your cluster as long as it is running. To stop incurring charges, revoke access to the cluster and delete it when you no longer need it.
