Step 4. Specify Amazon Bucket
In this article
At the Bucket step of the wizard, specify an AWS Region and Amazon S3 bucket where you want to store EC2 instance backups:
- From the Data center drop-down list, select an AWS Region where the Amazon S3 bucket is located. In case you create a new Amazon S3 bucket, it will be located in the specified AWS Region.
- In the Bucket field specify a bucket where EC2 instance backups will reside. You can create a new bucket or select an existing one:
- To create a new bucket, click Browse. In the Select Bucket window, click New Bucket. In the New Bucket window, enter a name for the bucket. Make sure that this name meets the requirements described in AWS Documentation.
- To select an existing bucket, enter its name into the Bucket field. As an alternative, you can browse all buckets existing in the selected AWS Region. To do this, click Browse and select the necessary bucket.
