This article describes how to create cross-account backups in multiple AWS accounts with Druva CloudRanger.
A backup policy automatically generates the backup in the origin AWS region. Druva CloudRanger offers a cross-account backup functionality to create copies in another AWS account. This generates additional copies in your chosen account, with the same retention criteria as defined in the backup policy.
Note: Cross-account backup is not supported for Redshift instances.
Creating cross-account backups
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:
- Navigate to Backup Policies on the left navigation menu and select the policy you wish to edit.
- On the Retention tab, select the Save an extra copy to another account checkbox.
- Specify the account to create a copy in and the preferred AWS region.
- Click Save & Continue.
