Description

In this course, you will learn how to use AWS Backup to create snapshots and have them available in another region — essentially creating a Disaster Recovery site.

  • Have a greater understanding of the AWS Backup service and how it interacts with other services such as EC2, EBS, and RDS
  • See how we create a cross-region backup
  • Terminology of AWS Backup
  • Basic usage
  • Creating a Backup Plan
  • Enabling and verifying cross-region functionality

Intended Audience

  • Those who want to understand the basics of the AWS Backup service
  • Those ready to tackle the hands-on task of creating EC2 snapshots that could be used to recover from an outage
  • Those who manage a fleet of EC2, perhaps along with RDS for their databases 

Prerequisites 

  • Have an understanding of the basics of AWS, such as using EC2 for Virtual Machines and RDS for your databases. As long as you understand how those services work at a high level, you should be able to get the most out of this course.
Transcript

AWS Backup is the tool to help you with centralized backup management for a number of AWS services, including EC2, EFS, DynamoDB and more. You can even back up on-prem resources. In this quick overview of this service, I'd like to show you how I use AWS backup to create snapshots and have them available in another region, essentially creating a disaster recovery site. Hello and welcome. My name is Carlos Rivas and I'm a Senior AWS Content Creator here at Cloud Academy. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions using the details shown on the screen or you can always get in touch with us by sending an email to support@cloudacademy.com where one of our cloud experts will reply to your question. This course is aimed at those who wants to understand the basics of the AWS backup service and also those ready to tackle the hands-on task of creating EC2 snapshots that could be used to recover from an outage.

So, if you manage a fleet of EC2s, perhaps along with RDS for your databases, then this course is for you. While a basic understanding of AWS cloud is desired, we won't be getting too technical or advanced in this overview. By the end of this course, you should have a greater understanding of the AWS backup service and how it interacts with other services such as EC2, EBS and RDS and also see how we create a cross-region backup. Some of the key points we'll be covering in this course include; terminology of AWS Backup, basic usage, creating a backup plan and enabling a verifying cross-region functionality. Ideally, you have an understanding of the basics of AWS, such as using EC2 for virtual machines and RDS for your databases. As long as you understand how those services work at a high level, you should be able to get the most out of this course. Feedback on our courses here at Cloud Academy is valuable to both us as trainers and any students looking to take the same course in the future.

Software Development has been my craft for over 2 decades. In recent years, I was introduced to the world of "Infrastructure as Code" and Cloud Computing.
I loved it! -- it re-sparked my interest in staying on the cutting edge of technology.

Colleagues regard me as a mentor and leader in my areas of expertise and also as the person to call when production servers crash and we need the App back online quickly.

My primary skills are:
★ Software Development ( Java, PHP, Python and others )
★ Cloud Computing Design and Implementation
★ DevOps: Continuous Delivery and Integration
