Backup MySQL Server Actions Now Support VPC

Our Backup MySQL Server action now supports VPC. Until now, the helper instance that is launched had to run outside of VPC. Now we have added a field for your VPC’s Subnet ID (and optionally private IP address).

Using these new options, you can launch your helper instance inside your VPC so it can access your RDS instances inside your VPC.

Please note that spot instances currently do not support the assignment of a private IP address.
