AWS Backup Enhances SNS Notifications to filter on job status

Posted on: Oct 4, 2019

AWS Backup now provides customers an automated way to receive notifications based on the status of their backup, restore, and recovery point jobs. For customers using SNS notifications to monitor their backups, this functionality will allow customers to directly filter for certain job status types, such as failed backup jobs. Prior to this, customers would have to discern the job status from the message, without the ability to filter on this attribute. This release is a continuation of our commitment to make data protection as seamless and as automated as possible for our customers. See the SNS for AWS Backup documentation for best practices, as well as a step-by-step guide for configuring failed backup job notifications.

AWS Backup offers a centralized, managed service to back up data across AWS services in the cloud and on premises using Storage Gateway. AWS Backup serves as a single dashboard for backup, restore, and policy-based retention of different AWS resources, including Amazon EBS volumes, Amazon RDS databases, Amazon DynamoDB tables, Amazon EFS file systems, and AWS Storage Gateway volumes.
