Data Protection

With AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication, you can protect the following workloads:

  • EC2 instances
  • RDS resources (DB instances and Aurora DB clusters)
  • VPC configurations
  • EFS file systems

To protect these workloads, you need to create 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. For more information, see Creating Backup Policies.

After the policies are created, you can manage them as described in Managing Backup Policies.

Additional Data Protection Options for EC2 Instances

Using the Veeam Backup & Replication console, you can also add an additional layer of protection for your infrastructure by creating backup copy jobs and backup to tape jobs for EC2 instances.

The backup copy jobs allow you to create and keep multiple instances of the same backed-up data in different locations. For more information, see Creating Backup Copy Jobs for EC2 Instances.

The backup to tape jobs allow you to keep backups of EC2 instances on tape devices. For more information, see Copying EC2 Instance Backups to Tapes.
