Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) on AWS Outposts now supports creating backups locally on AWS Outposts with Amazon S3 support. You can create backups of your Amazon RDS databases running on AWS Outposts to the same Outpost or to the AWS Region of your Outpost, allowing you to maintain your data residency requirements while giving you flexibility for maintaining your data recovery solutions. CloudFormation support will be coming soon.

In your monthly bill, Amazon RDS backups to an Outpost are billed the same as backup storage in an AWS region. This means that there is no additional charge for backup storage, up to 100% of your total database storage, within a region including all of the Outposts you have associated with for that region.

For more information, see the Amazon RDS on Outposts Pricing page and our RDS Outposts documentation. Get started backing up your Amazon RDS database instances on Outposts on the Amazon RDS Management Console.
