Getting started with AWS Backup

Back up your AWS resources with AWS Backup

AWS Backup makes it easy to centrally configure backup policies and monitor backup activity for AWS resources, such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances, Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volumes, Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) databases, Amazon DynamoDB tables, Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) file systems, Amazon FSx file systems, and AWS Storage Gateway volumes.

Once resources are backed up, you can monitor, modify, or restore your backups as needed


Assign AWS resources
