AWS Backup simplifies recovery point deletions
AWS Backup now makes it easier to delete recovery points that customers no longer need. Customers can use the new asynchronous delete operation from the console, CLI or APIs, to clean up existing recovery points in bulk and manage their backups more cost-effectively. This capability is available in all the AWS Regions where AWS Backup is supported. See the [AWS Region Table](/about-aws/global-infrastructure/regional-product-services/) for more information. AWS Backup centralizes and automates data protection across AWS services with compliance auditing and reporting capabilities for your business and regulatory needs.
