Using Amazon Backup to manage automated backups

Amazon Backup is a fully managed backup service that makes it easy to centralize and automate the backup of data across Amazon services in the cloud and on premises. You can manage backups of your Amazon RDS databases in Amazon Backup.


Backups managed by Amazon Backup are considered manual DB snapshots, but don't count toward the DB snapshot quota for RDS. Backups that were created with Amazon Backup have names ending in awsbackup:backup-job-number.

For more information about Amazon Backup, see the Amazon Backup Developer Guide.
