RDS Instance Restore

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

How RDS DB Instance Restore Works

To restore RDS instances from a snapshot, Veeam Backup for AWS performs the following steps using native AWS capabilities:

  1. Creates an RDS instance in the specified location.
  2. Modifies the configuration setting values of the created RDS instance.
  3. Restores backed-up databases to the restored RDS instance.

How to Perform Instance Restore

To restore a protected RDS instance, complete the following steps:

  1. Launch the RDS Restore wizard.
  2. Select a restore point.
  3. Specify an IAM identity for restore.
  4. Choose a restore mode.
  5. Enable encryption.
  6. Configure RDS instance settings.
  7. Configure network settings.
  8. Specify a restore reason.
  9. Finish working with the wizard.
