Copy a backup - AWS Backup

Copy a backup

You can copy backups to multiple AWS accounts or AWS Regions on demand or automatically as part of a scheduled backup plan. You can also automate a sequence of cross-account and cross-Region copies for most supported resources, except for Amazon RDS and Aurora. For Amazon RDS and Aurora snapshots, AWS Backup only supports automating either cross-account or cross-Region copies due to how those services create their encryption keys.

Copies inherit their source configuration unless you specify otherwise. There is one exception: if you specify that your copy "Never" expire, your copy still inherits its source expiration date. Currently, if you want your backup copies to be permanent, either set your source backups to never expire, or specify your copy to expire 100 years after its creation.
