As an EPIC milestone, we released the Cross Region replica! From now on, you can configure your Backup Jobs to replicate the recovery points across other regions in your account. This is an important feature to improve your ability to recover from a region-wide failure and help you transition your infrastructure to other regions.
Region failures are rare but are an important matter to address on any disaster recovery plan, and now Smart backup can help you meet your requirements.
But hold your horses because this feature is not backward compatible and requires an update on the Smart backup IAM role on your account.
If you want it enabled on previously defined Backup Jobs, jump into your account section and click on the blue question mark to update your policy. Smart backup will take care of the rest.
