AWS Backup now provides you with the flexibility to restore individual virtual disks that are attached to your VMware virtual machines (VMs), in addition to allowing you to restore the entire VM from its protected copy. Using AWS Backup, you can restore your VMware virtual disk to a VM in another VMware environment or in AWS as an Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volume.

AWS Backup provides a centralized data protection experience for your hybrid VMware workloads, helping you meet your business and regulatory compliance needs. You can use a single policy in AWS Backup to automate data protection and lifecycle management of your on-premises VMware, VMware Cloud™ on AWS, and VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts environments alongside the 12 AWS services (spanning compute, storage, and databases) supported by AWS Backup.

AWS Backup for VMware is available in the US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), US West (N. California, Oregon), AWS GovCloud (US) Regions (US-East, US-West), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, Milan, Paris, Stockholm), South America (Sao Paulo), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong, Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Osaka), Middle East (Bahrain), and Africa (Cape Town) Regions.
