AWS Backup, now, by default, creates crash-consistent backups of Amazon EBS volumes that are attached to an Amazon EC2 instance. Customers no longer have to stop their instance, or coordinate between multiple Amazon EBS volumes attached to the same Amazon EC2 instance to ensure crash-consistency of their application state.

AWS Backup enables you to centralize and automate data protection across AWS services, such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volumes, Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) databases (including Amazon Aurora clusters), Amazon DynamoDB tables, Amazon Elastic File System (EFS), Amazon FSx for Lustre, Amazon FSx for Windows File Server, and AWS Storage Gateway volumes and helps you support your regulatory compliance obligations.

For more information on where AWS Backup is available, see the AWS Regional Services List. To learn more, see the AWS Backup product page and documentation. To get started, visit the AWS Backup console.
