Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) for SQL Server now supports Cross Region Automated Backups with encryption in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. The Amazon RDS Cross-Region Automated Backups feature enables disaster recovery capability for mission-critical databases by providing you the ability to restore your database to a specific point in time within your backup retention period. This allows you to quickly resume operations in the event that the primary Amazon Web Services Region becomes unavailable. If you've enabled encryption on the source RDS for SQL Server DB instance, you can use this feature to copy encrypted DB snapshots to regions outside of the primary Amazon Web Services Region.
Pricing is comprised of the storage for snapshots and the data transfer of the snapshots and the transaction logs. Data transfer between the primary Amazon Web Services Region to a secondary Amazon Web Services Region is billed based on the data transfer rates of the applicable Amazon Web Services Regions.
Amazon RDS for SQL Server makes it simple to set up, operate, and scale SQL Server deployments in the cloud. See Amazon RDS for SQL Server Pricing for pricing details and regional availability.
