I have an EBS-based EC2 instance (ebs_vol_1) which mounts and extra EBS volume (ebs_vol_2), and DB in RDS.
Is tacking a snapshot of ebs_vol_1 & ebs_vol_2, enough for preventing data-loss? Is there a way to set it up, so it automatically takes the snapshots in regilar intervals?
Should I also be taking snapshots of my RDS DB or is Amazon taking care of backup? I currently don't have Multi-AZ.
I wouldn't like to wake up one morning and realize that I've lost all my hard work because of a hardware failure :/
