I have a couple Web server/DB server setups using Amazon's EC2. I am currently taking daily snapshots of all my system and EBS drives that contains all of my application files, DB files, source code and DB backups. I have a console application that runs the backup creations on a schedule. My images are EBS images.
I am working on a task that will drop my snapshots after so many days. I guess my question is, Should/can I also schedule a complete image/EBS task as well? This way, if the server fails or is corrupted I can just launch the latest image then apply the latest snapshot.
As I am working on my backup strategy, I am using Jungle Disc to back up my data discs.
