Today, AWS Backup is announcing application-aware data protection that enables you to add AWS CloudFormation stacks to backup policies, making it easier for you to back up and restore your entire applications. AWS Backup automates the data protection of applications that are defined using AWS CloudFormation stacks to create immutable application-level backups using AWS Backup Vault Lock.
Get started with application-aware data protection for applications defined using AWS CloudFormation using the AWS Backup console, API, or CLI. Automate the data protection of applications by creating backup policies and assigning AWS CloudFormation stacks using tags or Resources IDs. Now, all supported AWS services belonging to an application stack can be protected by AWS Backup so that an entire application has a single recovery point objective (RPO), simplifying and expediting application recovery during disasters and malicious incidents.
Application-aware data protection for applications defined using AWS CloudFormation stacks is available in US East (Ohio), US East (N Virginia), US West (North California), US West (Oregon), Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Jakarta), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Osaka), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Milan), Europe (Paris), Europe (Stockholm), Middle East (Bahrain), South America (São Paulo), AWS GovCloud (US-West), and AWS GovCloud (US-East) Regions.
