To back up the Amazon RDS database on Amazon cloud, create a new cloud DB instance for the database.
From the navigation pane, go to Protect > Databases.
The Instances page appears.
Click Add Instance, and then click Cloud DB.
The Add Cloud DB instance page appears.
From the Select vendor list, select Amazon.
From the Database engine list, select RDS.
You can use an existing Amazon Web Services (AWS) account for the instance, or define a new AWS account.
Use an existing AWS account
To select an existing cloud account for the instance, from the Cloud account list, select the cloud account name.
Define a new AWS account
Define custom permissions to access AWS resources to enable support for Amazon RDS backups and restores. Download the amazon_rds_backup_restore_permissions.json file and use it on the AWS command line to apply the required permissions.
From the Backup plan list, select the server plan that you want to use for the backup operations.
To filter the content that is backed up, click Edit, and then select or clear the regions to include or exclude from the backups.
After you create the cloud database instance, a default instance group is automatically created for the instance.
