Have you considered using Partitioned gem? It works with redshift!

TableManager

Helpful code to clone redshift tables

create table foos
(
  id int not null primary key distkey,
   name varchar(255) unique sortkey
);
class Foo < ActiveRecord::Base
end

require 'activerecord_redshift_adapter'

table_manager = ActiverecordRedshift::TableManager.new(Foo.connection, :exemplar_table_name => Foo.table_name)
table_manager.duplicate_table

yields:

  select oid from pg_namespace where nspname = 'public' limit 1;

  select oid,reldiststyle from pg_class where relnamespace = 2200 and relname = 'foos' limit 1;

  select contype,conkey from pg_constraint where connamespace = 2200 and conrelid = 212591;

  select attname,attnum from pg_attribute where attrelid = 212591 and attnum in (2,1);

  show search_path;

  set search_path = 'public';

  select * from pg_table_def where tablename = 'foos' and schemaname = 'public';

  create temporary table temporary_events_25343
  (
   id integer not null distkey,
   name character varying(255),
   primary key (id),
   unique (name)
  ) sortkey (name);

  set search_path = '$user','public';
