Protecting RDS Data in AWS Outposts
Commvault protects RDS instances in AWS Outposts by using AWS native snapshots.
You can configure a virtualization client to represent the AWS Outposts.
For more information, see Amazon RDS.
What Gets Backed Up
- Active RDS instances (whether they are turned on or turned off)
- Instance EBS volumes
- Volumes using default or custom encryption
What Does Not Get Backed Up
- RDS instance log backups are not protected
- Create a virtualization client for the Amazon RDS instance that you want to protect. A virtualization client is the access point for an AWS user account. You must define a virtualization client for at least one valid AWS account to protect the data. When you create a virtualization client, the Commvault software automatically creates an instance, and a default subclient that you use to protect the data.
For more information, see Configuration for Amazon RDS.
- Back up all the subclients for an Amazon RDS instance or a specific subclient.
For more information, see Performing an Amazon RDS Full Backup.
- You can restore instances (VMs) in place or to a new destination.
For more information, see Restoring an Amazon RDS Backup.
- Only a full RDS instance recovery is supported.
