Considerations for restoring DB instances on Amazon RDS on Amazon Outposts

When you restore a DB instance in Amazon RDS on Amazon Outposts, you can generally choose the storage location for automated backups and manual snapshots of the restored DB instance.

  • When restoring from a manual DB snapshot, you can store backups either in the parent Amazon Web Services Region or locally on your Outpost.

  • When restoring from an automated backup (point-in-time recovery), you have fewer choices:

    • If restoring from the parent Amazon Web Services Region, you can store backups either in the Amazon Web Services Region or on your Outpost.

    • If restoring from your Outpost, you can store backups only on your Outpost.
