The AWS Snapshot Manager For EC2 Instances
Take it from experience, performing images of instances within an Amazon EC2 environment is cumbersome, time consuming, and difficult. We’ve recognized this problem and Blueshift is supporting a solution that addresses it head on – Asigra AWS Snapshot Manager, a free software tool that automates the entire process.
Automate the Management of EC2 Instances with Asigra AWS Snapshot Manager
Asigra AWS Snapshot Manager provides automated AWS snapshot management through granular scheduling and reporting. With Asigra AWS Snapshot Manager supported by Blueshift, you can create a snapshot schedule through a simple, user-friendly GUI that automates taking snapshots of one or more AWS EC2 instances eliminating the need to write extensive scripts allowing you to free up resources to focus on other business priorities. You have the flexibility to preserve or delete snapshots associated with a schedule along with ability to specify the optional frequency, time and deletion rules when creating a snapshot set. For example, you can specify for daily snapshots to occur at 12:00 AM EST and to be deleted after 30 days.
The application allows running either scheduled or manual snapshots for instances in AWS EC2 to meet changing business requirements. The application also allows full control on how many generations to keep enabling you to minimize your AWS EC2 costs.
