Backup management in AMS Accelerate - AMS Accelerate Operations Plan

Backup management in AMS Accelerate

You use AWS Backup for continuity management in your AWS and AMS Accelerate accounts. AWS Backup is a native AWS service.

To learn more, see What Is AWS Backup? and AWS Backup: How It Works.

With AWS Backup you can create different backup policies called backup plans, which define what AWS resources to protect, how frequently they need to be backed up, and the backup retention. Each time AWS Backup backs up a resource, it creates a recovery point, and stores it into a backup vault. In AWS Backup, a backup vault is a container that you organize your backups in.

AMS Accelerate builds on top of native AWS Backup to provide the following for new or existing AWS Backup users:

  • AMS Accelerate monitors and attempts to remediate failed AWS Backup creation and restore jobs, irrespective of what backup plan is used (custom or AMS Accelerate default).

  • AMS Accelerate provides a backup coverage report which includes both protected and unprotected resources, irrespective of what backup plan is used (custom or AMS Accelerate default). Note that only you can confirm that the backup we create is fit for purpose.

For information on backup reports, see Backup reporting.
