In previous blogs, we have explained why properly tagging AWS resources is necessary, and we have explored some of best practices and recommended strategies for applying tags for your AWS cloud environment. Amazon Web Services have now taken this further and provided some great new support features for tagging Amazon EBS Snapshots so you can exercise more control them. You can now tag your Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) Snapshots at the time of creation. You can do this from the Amazon EC2 console or through the CreateSnapshot API. By tagging resources at the time of creation, you can eliminate the need to run custom tagging scripts after resource creation.

In this article, we will explain what you need to consider when planning your AWS DR strategy, including the frequency of testing, the types of backups you are going to require and explain how CloudRanger can help to improve your AWS DR strategy with automated testing.

And as with other types of insurance, it might also make sense to bring in a third-party vendor to handle your disaster recovery needs. READ MORE
