Configuring Veeam Backup for AWS

In this article

    To start working with Veeam Backup for AWS, perform a number of steps for its configuration:

    1. Add IAM roles to access AWS services and resources.
    2. Add user accounts to control access to Veeam Backup for AWS.
    3. Configure backup repositories.

    This step applies if you plan to protect EC2 instances with image-level backups and to keep an additional copy of the Amazon VPC configuration backup in Amazon S3.

    1. Configure network settings for worker instances.

    If you do not configure settings for worker instances, Veeam Backup for AWS will use the default settings of an AWS Region where worker instances will be launched.

    1. Configure global retention, email notification and single-sign-on settings.


    Even after you add IAM roles that manage your AWS resources and configure all the necessary settings, Veeam Backup for AWS will not populate the list of resources at the Resources tab — unless you create backup policies and specify regions where the AWS resources belong, as described in section Performing Backup.
