AWS Backup adds support for continuous backups and point-in-time recovery (PITR) of Amazon Relational Database (Amazon RDS) instances. You can now streamline your backup planning, management, and access control to Amazon RDS continuous backups in addition to the existing support of scheduled Amazon RDS snapshots.

You no longer need to coordinate backup windows, retention periods, or access controls between Amazon RDS and AWS Backup. You can also perform point-in-time recovery of your Amazon RDS instances directly from AWS Backup.  

AWS Backup enables you to centralize and automate data protection across AWS services. It offers a cost-effective, fully managed, policy-based service that further simplifies data protection at scale. In addition, AWS Backup helps you support your regulatory compliance obligations and meet your business continuity goals. To learn more about AWS Backup, visit the product page and documentation.
