EC2 Data

To view and manage backed-up EC2 instance data, navigate to Protected Data > EC2. The EC2 tab displays information on all protected EC2 instances and allows you to remove restore points of the instances if you no longer need them.

For each backed-up EC2 instance, Veeam Backup for AWS creates a record in the configuration database with the following set of properties:

  • Instance — a name of an EC2 instance.
  • Policy — a name of the backup policy that processed the EC2 instance.
  • Restore Points— a number of restore points created for the EC2 instance.
  • Latest Restore Point — the date and time of the latest restore point that was created for the EC2 instance.
  • Backup Size — the size of all backups created for the selected EC2 instance stored in standard repositories.
  • Archive size — the size of all backups created for the selected EC2 instance stored in archive backup repositories.
  • Region — an AWS Region in which the EC2 instance resides.
  • Data Retrieval — shows whether any of the archived restore points of the EC2 instance is retrieved.
  • File-level Recovery URL — a link to the file-level recovery browser.

The link appears when the file-level recovery session is started for the selected EC2 instance. The link contains a DNS name of the worker instance hosting the file-level recovery browser and authentication information used to access this worker instance.

  • Operating System — an operating system running on the EC2 instance.
  • IAM Role — an IAM Role used to back up the EC2 instance.
  • AWS Account — an AWS account where the EC2 instance belongs.
  • Instance ID — an AWS ID of the EC2 instance.
