If running regular backups is important for home users especially during the current new normal, it's essential in business: losing even a small fraction of your most important data, for a brief period of time, could still be a real disaster and loss. This is where Amazon Web Services can help. AWS offers the most storage services, data-transfer methods, and networking options to build solutions that protect your data with unmatched durability and security.
With cloud connectors and gateways, customers can begin backing up their on-premises data to Amazon Web Service for reliable data protection.
Use AWS Storage Gateway to create virtual tape libraries and eliminate the responsibilities of overseeing procurement cycles and error-prone processes.
Many AWS database services (relational and non-relational) have built-in, automated backup capabilities to protect your data and applications.
Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) offers cross-region replication to replicate data in other AWS Regions for compliance, security, disaster recovery, and other use cases.
Choosing the right options that ensures the best data backup plan for your needs.
Backups of data stored on Amazon Elastic Block Storage (Amazon EBS) to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for saving Amazon EBS volume costs where the backed-up data can be deleted from Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) with automated script triggered either from the cron job or task scheduler, as the Amazon S3 is comparatively of lesser cost from Amazon EBS.
This solution uses Amazon S3 as a backup repository for database backup files that are initially stored in an Amazon EBS volume. Database backups will be moved from the Amazon EC2 instance to an Amazon S3 bucket through Amazon S3 sync, using a custom shell script. Once the data has been migrated to Amazon S3, a custom shell script will be used to remove the database backup on the local Amazon EC2 instance.
