Amazon Lake Formation now supports cross account sharing of databases and tables in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. You can now create cross account data lakes to access data across your organization and eliminate data silos.

Many organizations use multi-account setup for their Amazon S3 data lakes for a variety of reasons, including to limit blast radius in the case of a security issue, manage budgets by organization unit, or simplify administration overhead. However, this causes the data in these data lakes to be siloed and inaccessible to others. With Lake Formation cross account sharing, you can now easily share data in your data lakes across multiple accounts, organizational units, and your entire organization.
