Lambda Stream Backup
AWS Lambda is a scalable and reliable tool which allows to automate cloud operations. Elastio, as a data protection-as-code platform, can be integrated into most workflows including Lambda functions. The Elastio stream backup functionality can be used in AWS Lambdas. The fundamental principle of this functionality is Lambda function based on a docker image. A Lambda Stream Backup performed by Elastio reads the data from a file stored in an S3 bucket and streams it directly into a docker container. The data is deduplicated, compressed, encrypted and is finally stored in an Elastio vault. This approach is efficient for protecting data from within a Lambda, as well as protecting and restoring data to and from database services.
This tutorial will guide you through the process of creating a docker image to perform Lambda stream backup.
You will find the instructions of the process and some examples here.
