Manage EC2 Resources

Heads up!

We've transitioned to a new documentation portal to serve you better. Access the latest content by clicking here.

Druva CloudRanger simplifies and reduces costs associated with the complexity of data lifecycle management for AWS cloud workloads. You can now manage all aspects of the backup and restore lifecycle across multiple regions and AWS accounts, all via one unified console.

Once you add and sync your AWS account(s) with Druva CloudRanger, all EC2 instances on your AWS account will now be available on your CloudRanger console. To view your EC2 instances, navigate to Resources > EC2. You can configure a backup policy or initiate a backup from the main Resources page.

Resource Tags

Resource Tags are standardized, case-sensitive key-value pairs that act as metadata to help identify and organize your AWS resources. The Add Tags functionality allows you to specify the key and an associated value, as part of managing resources for disaster recovery, global policies and script orchestration.

To define tags: 

  1. Log into your Druva CloudRanger console and navigate to Resources > EC2.
  2. Select one or more resources to define tags. Click Icon

Description automatically generated and then select Add Tags.

  3. Define tags with an appropriate Key and associate a relevant Value depending on the selected key. For example:
    Key: OriginValue: Origin ID
  4. Click Save.

Note: To manage tags on existing snapshots, refer to AWS Management Console - Tag Editor.
