AWS Backup now supports AWS PrivateLink for VMware workloads, providing direct access to AWS Backup from your VMware environment via a private endpoint within your virtual private network in a scalable manner. With this launch, you can now secure your network architecture by connecting to AWS Backup using private IP addresses in your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), eliminating the need to use public IPs, firewall rules, or an Internet Gateway. AWS PrivateLink is available at a low per-GB charge for data processed and a low hourly charge for interface VPC endpoints. See AWS PrivateLink pricing for more information.

AWS Backup provides you a VMware data protection experience that is consistent across your on-premises environments and AWS Regions, helping you meet your business and regulatory compliance needs.
