Backup solutions for AWS EC2 instances

0 votes

I'm looking for a backup solution for Amazon EC2 instances. I found this: http://www.n2ws.com and I wanted to know if there were other ones.

Thank you

PS: It's possible to automatically backup RDS databases using Amazon solution but there isn't anything for EC2 instances... Is there?

I've been using Skeddly for several months now to automatically backup the EBS volumes attached to my EC2 instances.

I'm really happy with it so far. I liked the way I could define which instances to backup: only instances with a specific tag are backed up. I just have to add this tag to the instances I want to back up. No need to do any change in Skeddly each time I add an instance. I had to define 2 actions in Skeddly: one to backup the instances and one to delete the old snapshots.

And I receive emails to inform me the actions (backup and expiration) have been successful or not.
