I have read some articles about amazon ec2 instances and ebs. I found out that, the data on the instance are not persistent, which means, if the hardware fails, instance shut down, I will lost my data. Hence, what is your backup plan for this case?
Q1 How do you backup the necessary files and database (mysql)?
Q2 I created/mounted an EBS volume. What should I do with it? (How big should I assign the Volume, by default, I assigned 1 GB, is it enough? Or is it extensible?)
Q3. Whats the snapshots in EBS? (for backup?)
My OS: Amazon Linux Using ec2 instance, installed httpd and mysql
