Automate and Centrally Manage Your Backups

Nothing is more frustrating than losing important data, whether due to a system crash or user error. You need a solid backup system to ensure that your data is always safe and sound.


AWS Backup allows you to quickly and easily create file systems, storage volumes, relational databases, and NoSQL databases, among other resources that store valuable data. You can generate them as required, giving you access to an unlimited amount of storage and simplifying large-scale cloud migration processes.


Generally, AWS Backup is created to help automate and manage your backups from one central location. You can establish backup plans run by policy, monitor the status of ongoing backups, verify compliance, and restore lost backups—all using the console.


Backup plans come with one or more backup rules that dictate the schedule, frequency, and window for backups. The resources to be backed up can be specified directly or through policy-driven tagging.


Backup stores the set of snapshots and their metadata in collections called recovery points. You can control how often these backup jobs run, so you can ensure your data is backed up according to your requirements. When you need to restore data, it is easy to do so from the grouped vaults that are encrypted by a KMS key.


The process to get started is easy, and you pay the standard AWS charges for backups created using the integrated AWS snapshot function. For Amazon EFS, there’s a small per-GB fee for warm storage and an even smaller fee for cold storage.


Be sure to consult AWS cloud migration services to ensure a smooth transition to the cloud while also simplifying and securing your computing processes. Service providers use a tool-based framework to get you up and running quickly while adding value to your organisation’s transformation into a cloud-based business.
