AWS Backup, a cost-effective, fully managed, policy-based service that further simplifies data protection at scale, is now available in the AWS Asia Pacific (Osaka) Region. With AWS Backup, you can centralize and automate data protection across AWS services and accounts, to support your regulatory compliance obligations and meet your business continuity goals.

Together with AWS Organizations, AWS Backup enables you to centrally deploy data protection (backup) policies to configure, manage, and govern your backup activity across your organization’s AWS accounts and resources, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volumes, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) databases (including Amazon Aurora clusters), Amazon DynamoDB tables, and Amazon Elastic File System (EFS).

For more information on where AWS Backup is available, see the AWS Regional Services List. Note that AWS Backup for AWS Storage Gateway volumes, Amazon FSx for Lustre, and Amazon FSx for Windows File Server are currently not supported in the AWS Asia Pacific (Osaka) Region. Also, the cross-account backup feature is currently not supported in the AWS Asia Pacific (Osaka) Region. To learn more about AWS Backup, visit the AWS Backup product page and documentation.
