SEATTLE, WA – January 13, 2020 — / — AWS Backup now provides a streamlined experience for Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) Item-Level Recovery. You can now use AWS Backup to perform granular recovery of individual files or folders from Amazon EFS backups using a centralized console, for a simplified and fast restore experience, to meet more stringent Recovery Time Objective (RTO) requirements. To get started, choose the “Item-level Restore” restore type and provide one or more paths you want to recover using the AWS Backup console, SDK or CLI. This release is a continuation of our commitment to make data protection as streamlined and scalable as possible for our customers.

For step-by-step guidance on how to recover individual files or directories, please see the AWS Backup documentation here –

AWS Backup offers a centralized, fully-managed, policy-based service to back up data across AWS services. With AWS Backup, you can centrally configure backup scheduling, set retention policies and monitor backup activity for different AWS resources, including Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) instances, Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volumes, Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) databases, Amazon DynamoDB tables, Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) file systems, and AWS Storage Gateway volumes.

Amazon EFS provides a simple, scalable, fully managed elastic NFS file system for use with AWS Cloud services and on-premises resources. It is built to scale on demand to petabytes without disrupting applications, growing and shrinking automatically as you add and remove files, eliminating the need to provision and manage capacity to accommodate growth.

This feature is available in all regions where AWS Backup is available for Amazon EFS. To learn more, please see the AWS Backup and the Amazon EFS product pages and documentation.
