Step 4. Configure Backup Target Settings

At the Targets step of the wizard, specify backup vaults that will be used to store backups of the selected Redshift clusters:

  1. In the Backups section, click Choose backup vaults.
  2. In the Choose backup vaults window, for each AWS Region included in the policy, specify a backup vault to save and organize cluster backups. To do that:
  1. Select an AWS Region and click Edit.
  2. In the Edit Backup Vault window, from the Backup vault drop-down list, select the necessary backup vault.

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 no custom backup vaults exist in the selected AWS Region, the list will contain the default backup vault only.


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 and restore operations. For more information on vault access policies, see AWS Documentation.
  • For Veeam Backup for AWS to be able to back up Redshift clusters, you must enable the Opt-in service for the Redshift resource type in the AWS Backup settings. Otherwise, Veeam Backup for AWS will automatically enable the service for each AWS Region specified in the Backups section in your AWS account while performing backup operations.
  1. Click Save.
  1. To save changes made to the backup policy settings, click Apply.
