Amazon RDS for SQL Server is announcing new enhancements to its backup and restore capabilities. You can restore a backup file to the same DB instance that was used to create the file, and you can restore the same backup file to a DB instance multiple times. To learn more, visit our documentation on importing a SQL Server Database into Amazon RDS.
We are also announcing synchronous restores into RDS SQL Server instances that have Multi-AZ enabled. This will simultaneously restore the full backup to both the primary and secondary instances when restoring a native backup.
To learn more about these two features, visit the blog post RDS for SQL server has two new exciting backup and restore enhancements.
