Performing Redshift Backup

One backup policy can be used to process one or more Redshift clusters within one AWS account. The scope of data that you can protect in an AWS account is limited by permissions of an IAM role that is specified in the backup policy settings.


If you plan to receive email notifications on backup policy results, configure email notification settings before creating a Redshift backup policy. For more information, see Configuring Global Notification Settings.

To scheduled data protection tasks to run automatically, create backup policies. For each protected Redshift cluster, you can also take a backup manually when needed.


Consider the following:

  • Veeam Backup for AWS does not support backup of Amazon Redshift Serverless.
  • Veeam Backup for AWS supports backup of Redshift clusters only to the same AWS accounts to which the source clusters belong and to the same AWS Region where the source cluster resides.
