Performing EFS Backup

To back up Amazon EFS file systems, Veeam Backup for AWS runs backup policies. A backup policy is a collection of settings that define the way backup operations are performed: what data to back up, where backups must be stored, when the backup process must start and so on.

One backup policy can be used to process multiple EFS file systems within different regions, but you can back up each file system with one backup policy at a time. If an EFS file system is added to more than one backup policy, it will be processed only by a backup policy that has the highest priority. Other backup policies will skip this file system from processing. For information on how to set a priority for a backup policy, see Setting Policy Priority.

For EFS systems residing in any of the regions added to the backup policies, you can also take a backup manually when needed.


You can back up EFS file systems only to the same AWS accounts where the source file systems belong.
