AWS Backup now provides customers a more seamless way to manage their backups, by automatically copying tags from their nested EBS volumes to their EC2 backups. For customers using tags to manage their AWS resources, AWS Backup will enable them to more effectively search for source resources or conduct billing for their backups. See AWS Tagging Strategies for tagging best practices.

AWS Backup offers a centralized, managed service to back up data across AWS services in the cloud as well as on premises using Storage Gateway. AWS Backup serves as a single dashboard for backup, restore, and policy-based retention of different AWS resources, including Amazon EBS volumes, Amazon RDS databases, Amazon DynamoDB tables, Amazon EFS file systems, and AWS Storage Gateway volumes.
