We’re happy to announce that we’ve added support for scheduling of creating and deleting DynamoDB backups. Today, we are adding two new actions:
To create daily DynamoDB backups, you would use our new “Create DynamoDB Backups” action. This action allows you to select tables:
To delete your DynamoDB backups, you would use the “Delete DynamoDB Backups” action. This action allows you to select backups:
Once backups have been selected, they can be checked for a minimum age. For example, delete backups older than 30 days. We also included our handy Grandfather-Father-Son delete scheme with this action.
And finally, you can choose to have a report emailed to you listing the DynamoDB backups that have been deleted.
As we’ve previously discussed, AWS does not support DynamoDB backups in all regions yet. Currently, the only regions supported are:
Also, we are eagerly awaiting resource tag support for DynamoDB backups. Once AWS has added support, we will expand our actions as well.
Full pricing information for these new actions can be found on our pricing page.
