EC2 Instances

The list of EC2 instances that you can protect is available in the Instances view of Veeam Backup for AWS.

Right after the product installation, the list of EC2 instances in the view is empty. Veeam Backup for AWS populates it with EC2 instances on which IAM roles that you specify in backup policy settings have permissions.
