AWS Backup: How it works

AWS Backup is a fully managed backup service that makes it easy to centralize and automate the backing up of data across AWS services. With AWS Backup, you can create backup policies called backup plans. You can use these plans to define your backup requirements, such as how frequently to back up your data and how long to retain those backups.

AWS Backup lets you apply backup plans to your AWS resources by simply tagging them. AWS Backup then automatically backs up your AWS resources according to the backup plan that you defined.

The following sections describe how AWS Backup works, its implementation details, and security considerations.
