Veeam Software recently announced the general availability of Veeam Backup for AWS v3. The fully automated and native backup and disaster recovery solution built on AWS has been designed to provide additional protection and management capabilities for Amazon EC2 and Amazon RDS.
This new support and feature set is available in two packaging options: Veeam Backup for AWS, a standalone AWS backup and recovery solution for protecting data on AWS; and Veeam Backup & Replication, unifying AWS backup and recovery with other cloud, virtual or physical data and unlimited data portability to, from and across clouds.
Veeam Backup for AWS v3 now delivers AWS-native backup and recovery of Amazon RDS databases. According to the company, users are able to fully automate backups of Amazon RDS with flexible policies and scheduling, and can subsequently overcome any data loss using fast recovery options to restore entire databases from an exact point in time in just seconds.
Veeam Backup for AWS is available in three editions: a free standalone cloud backup solution (limited to 10 AWS instances; unlimited restores), a paid standalone cloud backup solution (starting at $40 per AWS instance per year; metering enabled; pay for what you use) or as part of Veeam Backup & Replication for a hybrid and multi-cloud strategy with unlimited data portability options.
