A backup policy automatically generates the backup in the origin AWS region. Druva CloudRanger offers a cross-region backup functionality to create copies in up to two additional AWS regions. This generates additional copies in your chosen regions, with the same retention criteria as defined in the backup policy.
Note: Cross-region backup is not supported for DynamoDB and Redshift resources.
You can choose to save additional backup copies when you are creating a new backup policy.
To define additional copies for a pre-existing policy:
- On the top navigation bar, click Policies and then select the policy you wish to edit.
- Navigate to the Retention tab, and select the Save extra copies to other regions checkbox.
- Specify up to two preferred AWS regions to create copies in.
- Click Save & Continue.
