How Long Does RDS Store Backup Data?

The RDS DB instance automated backup data is stored for the backup retention period you specify and manual backup retention period has no maximum. You can delete backups once they are no longer needed.

The RDS DB instance backup data is stored in OBS and does not occupy the database storage space you purchased.
