Performing RDS Instance Restore

In case of a disaster, you can restore a DB instance or an Aurora DB cluster from a cloud-native snapshot, snapshot replica or an AWS snapshot. Veeam Backup for AWS allows you to restore one or more RDS resources at a time, to the original location or to a new location.


Restore of RDS resources with gp3 storage volumes is not supported. For more information on General Purpose gp3 storage volumes, see AWS Documentation.
