Managing Backed-Up 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.
- Instance Size — a size of all EBS volumes attached to the EC2 instance.
- 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 restore session is started for the file-level restore process. The link contains a public 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 belong.
- Instance ID — an AWS ID of the EC2 instance.
