AWS Backup is a fully managed service for backup and restore. It allows for backup across multiple services like databases, block storage, object storage, and file systems.that is Amazon EBS volumes, and many more.

So what is the advantage of the services.

  1. Daily, weekly and even monthly backups can be set up.
  2. The pricing model is the same as that of snapshots.
  3. App data in cloud and on-premises can be backed up in a common way (i.e., same backup policy for cloud data and Storage Gateway volumes).

Let’s talk about the features of AWS Backup.

  1. For EC2 AMIs, we have this option of ‘create image’ which saves the configured machine as a reusable AMI setup.
  2. For RDS, we had backup options where we set retention days of up to 35 days, where the backups.
  3. For EBS volume backups, we create snapshots of the volumes. and also set-up the service Data Lifecycle Manager for setting up automated backing up of snapshots.
