EFS-to-EFS Backup Solution
EFS-to-EFS Backup Solution


When you build systems on AWS infrastructure, security responsibilities are shared between you and AWS. This shared model can reduce your operational burden as AWS operates, manages, and controls the components from the host operating system and virtualization layer down to the physical security of the facilities in which the services operate. For more information about security on AWS, visit the AWS Security Center.

Security Group

The security group created in this solution is designed to allow all traffic to flow from the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance to the backup Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) file system within the same security group. The Amazon EC2 instance must have inbound access to the source Amazon EFS file system. We recommend that you review the security groups and further restrict access as needed once the deployment is up and running. For more information, see Security Groups for Amazon EC2 Instances and Mount Targets in the Amazon EFS User Guide.
