Configuring Image-Level Backup Settings

In this article

    If you want to create image-level backups of the selected EC2 instances, do the following:

    1. In the Backups section of the Targets step of the wizard, set the Enable backups toggle to On.
    2. In the Repositories window, select a standard repository where the created image-level backups must be stored, and click Apply.

    For a backup repository to be displayed in the repository list, it must be added to Veeam Backup for AWS as described in section Adding Backup Repositories. The list shows only backup repositories of the S3 Standard class.

    You can also enable the backup archiving mechanism to instruct Veeam Backup for AWS to store backed-up data in the low-cost, long-term archive storage:

    1. Select the Archives will be stored in check box.
    1. In the Repositories window, select an archive repository where the archived data will be stored, and click Apply.

    For an archive repository to be displayed in the repository list, it must be added to Veeam Backup for AWS as described in section Adding Backup Repositories. The list shows only backup repositories of the S3 Glacier or S3 Glacier Deep Archive classes.

    For more information on backup archiving, see Enabling Backup Archiving.

    Important

    If you enable the backup archiving mechanism, consider that data encryption must be either enabled or disabled for both backup and archive repositories. This means that you cannot select an encrypted repository and an unencrypted repository in one backup policy. However, the selected repositories can have different encryption schemes (password and KMS encryption).
