Amazon FSx and Amazon Backup now enable you to copy your Amazon FSx file system backups (both Amazon FSx for Windows File Server and Amazon FSx for Lustre) across Amazon Web Services China Regions, Amazon Web Services China accounts, or both. With cross-region backups, you can store a copy of your backup data in Amazon Web Services China Regions other than where your primary backups are stored, helping you meet business continuity, disaster recovery, and compliance requirements. In addition, cross-account backups enable you to copy backups into a secondary backup account to provide an additional layer of protection, should the main backup account experience disruption from accidental or malicious deletion, disaster, or ransomware. Customers may use their Amazon Organizations management account to designate certain accounts as secondary backup accounts to ensure that backups are copied only to trusted accounts in the organization.
Amazon FSx is a fully managed service that makes it easy to launch and run feature-rich and highly-performant file systems. Amazon Backup enables you to centralize and automate data protection across Amazon Web Services’ services, and helps you support your regulatory compliance obligations and meet your business continuity goals. Amazon Organizations helps you centrally manage, govern, and audit your environment as you grow and scale your Amazon Web Services resources. You can now use the Amazon Backup console, API, or CLI to define cross-region backup, cross-account backup, or both, for your Amazon FSx file systems as part of your scheduled backup plan. You can also use the Amazon FSx console or Amazon Backup console, API, or CLI to perform manual, on-demand backup copies.
This feature is now available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
