Monitoring: AWS Backup
AWS Backup is a fully managed backup and recovery service that makes it easy to centralize and automate the backup of your AWS resources, including Amazon EBS volumes, Amazon RDS databases, Amazon DynamoDB tables, and Amazon EFS file systems. AWS Backup also provides data retention, transfer, and lifecycle management tools, making it a comprehensive solution for managing your AWS backups.
Monitoring AWS Backup is important for ensuring the success and reliability of your backup and recovery operations. One of the key reasons to monitor AWS Backup is to spot issues with failed backup jobs.
Failed backup jobs can occur for various reasons, including resource unavailability, configuration errors, or network connectivity issues. When backup jobs fail, it can leave your data at risk and cause significant downtime if data needs to be recovered.
That’s why it is crucial to monitor AWS Backup.
