AWS Storage Gateway provides the ability to back up point-in-time snapshots of your data to Amazon S3 for durable recovery. You can use the snapshot backups later on-premises or in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), and you can take snapshots on a one-time or scheduled basis. In this blog, we show you the most common tasks that you can perform with snapshots, including creating a snapshot and restoring the snapshot to a volume that can then be mounted as an iSCSI device. When you restore a snapshot to an Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volume, the volume can then be attached to an Amazon EC2 instance.

Stephen J Bigelow of TechTarget writes this week about the impact of cloud on IT budgets. Traditionally computing was capital-intensive and depended on on-site technology and staff. When a business needed a service, such as Microsoft Exchange, it would budget for servers, software licenses, and often infrastructure. The business would then wait for weeks (or months) for the servers delivery and installation which would then require deployment and testing. IT staff would assign user rights and if issues arose, IT would deal with them.
