AWS Backup






AWS Backup was integrated by Mindflow to enable users to automate their incident management and better protect their information system.

AWS Backup Overview

AWS Backup is a backup management solution available as part of the AWS stack. AWS Backup offers a cost-effective, fully managed, and policy-based service that simplifies data protection at scale. Use it to centralize and automate data protection across your AWS services and hybrid workloads.

The platform helps you support regulatory compliance or business policies for data protection. Together with AWS Organizations, you can use AWS Backup to centrally deploy data protection policies to configure, manage, and govern your backup activity across your company’s AWS accounts and resources. Supported resources are multiple and include:

Amazon EC2 instances, Windows Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) supported applications (including Windows Server, Microsoft SQL Server, and Microsoft Exchange Server) on Amazon EC2, Amazon EBS volumes, Amazon S3 buckets, Amazon RDS databases (including Amazon Aurora clusters), Amazon DynamoDB tables, Amazon Neptune databases, Amazon DocumentDB databases, Amazon EFS file systems, Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP file systems, Amazon FSx for Lustre file systems, Amazon FSx for Windows File Server file systems, Amazon FSx for OpenZFS file systems, AWS Storage Gateway volumes, VMware workloads on-premises, on Amazon Outposts, and in VMware CloudTM on AWS.

AWS backup can be managed from its central console or via its API that is integrated by Mindflow. From Mindflow’s platform, you can pull actions in AWS Backup and other services.

Centrally manage backups

Configure backup policies from a central backup console to ensure that your data across AWS services is backed up and protected.

Automate backup processes

Automated backup schedules, retention management, and lifecycle management, removing the need for custom scripts and manual processes. You can apply backup policies to your resources by tagging them.

Improve backup compliance

Enforce your backup policies, encrypt backups, protect them from manual deletion and prevent changes to your lifecycle settings, and audit and report on backup activity from a centralized console to help meet your backup compliance requirements.


AWS secures your backups by encrypting your data in transit and at rest.
