Creating Backup Policies

In this article

    When you create a backup policy, Veeam Backup & Replication redirects you to the Veeam Backup for AWS Web UI where you can add a backup policy directly to Veeam Backup for AWS. For more information on the backup policies, see the following sections in the Veeam Backup for AWS User Guide:


    VPC backup policy is created automatically on the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance. That is why, you can only manage this policy: edit, enable and disable. For more information on VPC backup policy, see the Performing VPC Configuration Backup section in the Veeam Backup for AWS User Guide.

    To create backup policies:

    1. Launch and complete the Add Policy wizard using one of the following instructions:
    • On the Home tab, navigate to Backup Job > AWS > EC2 or RDS.
    • Open the Home view. In the inventory pane, right-click the Jobs node and select Backup > AWS > EC2 or RDS.

    If you have several Veeam Backup for AWS appliances added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, select the necessary appliance under the EC2 or RDS node.

    1. Follow the instructions provided in section Creating EC2 Backup Policies or Creating RDS Backup Policies (steps 2–8) in the Veeam Backup for AWS User Guide.
