Modernize Amazon RDS Backup & Recovery

Empower your admins with radically simplified backup and recovery for Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) – all at cloud scale.


Backup modernization meets Amazon RDS

Forget manual job scheduling and point-solutions that increase cost and operational complexity. Rubrik reimagines RDS protection with unified management and visibility across hybrid-cloud delivered as a service.

Policy-Based Automation

Leverage a central UI to apply SLA policies to all RDS instances across your AWS accounts and regions with automated backups. Ensure your backup and recovery requirements are met with flexible, customized retention.

Blazing Fast Recovery

Meet your most aggressive RTOs with automated recovery in just a few clicks. Restore RDS instances to an exact point in time within minutes. Ensure uninterrupted data access across all RDS instance types and availability zones.

Unified Management and Reporting

Utilize a single solution for global management and reporting across your hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Allow self-service access for backup and database admins alike.

Modern Data Protection for Databases

This guide explores what modern database protection entails, examining the difference between the legacy and modern approach in four areas essential for successful data protection.


How it works

  1. Easily set up native protection of RDS and EC2 instances in one streamlined workflow. Rubrik Polaris will auto-discover instances to be protected from selected regions.

  2. Rubrik Polaris generates a CloudFormation template to automate cross-account IAM role creation, allowing Rubrik to accelerate authentication without establishing long-lived keys or secret management.
