Enabling Additional Backup Copy

If you want to copy DynamoDB backups to other AWS Regions, do the following:

  1. In the Backup copies section of the Targets step of the wizard, set the Create backup copies toggle to On.
  2. In the Choose backup vaults window, configure the following mapping settings for each AWS Region where original tables reside:
  1. Select a source AWS Region in the list and click Edit Region Mapping.
  2. In the Edit Region Mapping window, specify the following settings:
  1. From the Target region drop-down list, select the target AWS Region to which Veeam Backup for AWS must copy created backups of the selected tables.
  2. From the Backup vault drop-down list, select a backup vault that will be used to store the copied backups.

For a backup vault to be displayed in the Backup vault list, it must be created in the AWS Backup console as described in AWS Documentation. If you have not created a backup vault for the selected AWS Region, Veeam Backup for AWS will display only the default backup vault existing in this region.


Consider the following:

  • Make sure policies assigned to the selected backup vault allow Veeam Backup for AWS to access vault resources and to perform backup, backup copy and restore operations. For more information on vault access policies, see AWS Documentation.
  • For Veeam Backup for AWS to be able to back up DynamoDB tables, you must configure the AWS Backup settings to enable both the Opt-in service and the advanced features for Amazon DynamoDB backups. Otherwise, Veeam Backup for AWS will automatically enable these settings for each AWS Region specified in the Backup copies section in your AWS account while performing backup operations. For more information on advanced DynamoDB backup, see AWS Documentation.
