Review the requirements for AWS Outposts.
Access Node Placement
Protection of your AWS Outposts requires Commvault access nodes.
For optimal performance, protection of Amazon EC2 and Amazon RDS instances using snapshots requires access nodes that are within the AWS region (public cloud).
Protection of Amazon RDS instances (dump/export) and Amazon EKS instances requires at least one access node to be located within the AWS Outposts.
Cloud Library Placement
All AWS Outposts-hosted EBS and RDS snapshots are stored within the AWS region, per AWS Outposts.
You can deploy Commvault in all countries that are supported by AWS Outposts. For more information about the countries supported by AWS Outposts, go to AWS Outposts FAQs on the AWS Outposts documentation site.
Currently, Commvault supports the following AWS Outposts countries:
North America: US, Canada, Mexico
EMEA: All EU countries, Switzerland, Norway, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), Israel, South Africa
APAC: Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, India
South America: Brazil
You can deploy Commvault in all regions supported by AWS Outposts. For more information about the regions supported by AWS Outposts, go to AWS Outposts FAQs on the AWS Outposts documentation site.

Commvault software uses ec2:CreateImage to create Amazon EC2 backups as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI). AWS Outposts does not support ec2:CreateImage, so Amazon EC2 AMIs and associated Amazon EBS volume snapshots are stored in the parent region instead of on the Outposts Rack or Server.
EBS-based snapshot protection of EC2 and RDS instances must occur within the AWS region for optimal read throughput from EBS snapshots.
Localized backups can be retained on the AWS Outposts (Rack, 1RU servers, and 2RU servers) by creating Amazon EBS volumes as Commvault Disk Libraries or Amazon S3 on Outposts buckets as Commvault Cloud Libraries.
Commvault backup plans ensure your data residency requirements by writing the backup data only to where you require it (with or without encryption).
Commvault can be directed to write to local storage devices outside your AWS Outposts via an Amazon Local Gateway (LGW), if required.
