  • Phoenix Management Console
  1. Register your AWS account with Phoenix

Phoenix requires an IAM role to access workloads running in your account. Use the Druva provided CloudFormation template to grant to attach the IAM role to Phoenix. 

For more information, see Register an AWS account with Phoenix.

  • AWS console
  1. Configure workloads for backup

After the AWS account is registered with Phoenix, you can configure resources for backup. When you configure a resource for backup, you attach a backup policy to the resource that specifies when the backup job is run and where the snapshot is stored. For steps and details on AWS resource that you can backup, see Configure AWS resource for backup.

  • Phoenix Management Console

After you configure the AWS resource with Phoenix, Phoenix runs backups of the resource based on the backup policy and stores the snapshots in the specified regions of your AWS account.
