RDS sql-server snapshot export to S3


Is there any change in the announcement that is found here?


Amazon RDS Snapshot Export to S3 can export data from Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL, Amazon RDS for MariaDB, Amazon RDS for MySQL, Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL, and Amazon Aurora MySQL snapshots and is now available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Regions.

I do not see the "sql-server" nor Mumbai region in the above statement.

As mentioned in the docs: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonRDS/latest/UserGuide/USER_ExportSnapshot.html

Amazon RDS supports exporting snapshots in all AWS Regions except the following:

Asia Pacific (Jakarta)
AWS GovCloud (US-East)
AWS GovCloud (US-West)

The following table shows the engines that are supported for exporting snapshot data to Amazon S3:

Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL
Amazon RDS for MariaDB
Amazon RDS for MySQL
Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL
Amazon Aurora MySQL 

With Amazon RDS for SQL Server - you have the ability to execute native backup and restore for Microsoft SQL Server databases using full/diff backup files (.bak files), which will be saved directly on S3.
