Amazon Backup announces support for Amazon S3, making it easier for you to centrally automate backup and restore of your application data stored in Amazon S3 along with other Amazon Web Services services for compute, storage, and database. Using Amazon Backup’s seamless integration with Amazon Organizations, you can centrally create and manage immutable backups of S3 data across all your accounts, protect your data from inadvertent or malicious actions, and restore the data to your specified point-in-time with a few simple clicks. 

You can get started with Amazon Backup for Amazon S3 using the Amazon Backup console, SDKs, or CLI by creating a centralized data protection policy and then assigning S3 buckets to it using tags or Resource IDs. When defining the policy, you can choose to create continuous or periodic backups based on your application needs. Once these steps are completed, Amazon Backup will automatically start creating backups of S3 data in Amazon Backup’s encrypted backup vaults. You can restore S3 buckets or individual S3 objects from your backup vault with a few simple clicks or with a single API call. 

Amazon Backup support for Amazon S3 will now be available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.  To learn more about Amazon Backup support for Amazon S3, visit the Amazon Backup product page, and documentation.
