Protecting AWS Workloads

In this article

    To protect an Amazon EC2 instance using Mine with Veeam, perform the following steps:

    1. Add to the backup infrastructure a Veeam Backup for AWS appliance that will manage backup and restore operations for AWS workloads. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for AWS Guide, section Adding Veeam Backup for AWS Appliances.
    2. Add an S3 backup repository that will be used to store backups created for the Amazon EC2 instance. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for AWS Guide, section Adding S3 Backup Repositories.
    3. Configure a backup policy that will create backups for the Amazon EC2 instance. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for AWS Guide, section Creating Backup Policies.
    4. Configure a backup copy job that will transfer the created backups to a Mine with Veeam repository. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for AWS Guide, section Creating Backup Copy Jobs for EC2 Instances.

    Once the backup policy successfully creates a restore point (either a snapshot or a backup) for the Amazon EC2 instance, you can perform the following operations to restore the instance:

    • Restore the entire Amazon EC2 instance to AWS. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for AWS Guide, section Restoring Amazon EC2 Instances.
    • Immediately restore the Amazon EC2 instance to a VMware vSphere or Hyper-V environment. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for AWS Guide, section Performing Instant Recovery.
    • Restore the Amazon EC2 instance to a Nutanix AHV cluster. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for AWS Guide, section Restoring to Nutanix AHV.
    • Restore the Amazon EC2 instance to Microsoft Azure. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for AWS Guide, section Restoring to Microsoft Azure.
    • Restore the Amazon EC2 instance to Google Cloud. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for AWS Guide, section Restore to Google Compute Engine.
    • Restore items of applications such as Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Database. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for AWS Guide, section Restoring Application Items.

    With Veeam Backup & Replication, you can also back up Amazon Relational Database Service resources, Amazon Elastic File Systems and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud configurations.
