Snapshot constraints - Amazon MemoryDB for Redis
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Snapshot constraints

Consider the following constraints when planning or making snapshots:

  • For MemoryDB clusters, snapshot and restore are available for all supported node types.

  • During any contiguous 24-hour period, you can create no more than 20 manual snapshots per cluster.

  • MemoryDB only supports taking snapshots on the cluster level. MemoryDB doesn't support taking snapshots at the shard or node level.

  • During the snapshot process, you can't run any other API or CLI operations on the cluster.

  • If you delete a cluster and request a final snapshot, MemoryDB always takes the snapshot from the primary nodes. This ensures that you capture the very latest data before the cluster is deleted.
