@XavierLucas That's certainly a good solution. Why don't you enter that as an answer?

comment Download your files from your dedicated server to synology
Hey, I started as a PHP guy too :). Avoid FTP, it's insecure and obsolete. Learning SSH and related tools like rsync is worth your time. Here's a tutorial on rsync: digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/…. Get it working manually first. Then set up a passwordless SSH keypair for authentication. Finally add the rsync command to cron and you're done.

comment The instance created from EBS snapshot fails to launch
@EricHammond We create daily snapshots of multiple volumes on a dozen instances. We rarely need to recover from one. I suppose I thought having so many AMI's would be hell to maintain and clean up. Good idea though. Any suggestions on how to automate such a system?

comment The instance created from EBS snapshot fails to launch
If the original instance is gone and you only have the snapshot, how do you determine the AKI? Any automated way to store the AKI-id in the snapshot description or as a tag? Can ec2-consistent-snapshot do this?

comment Method for offsite backup of EC2 servers?
I'd need to script something to rsync relevant data from all current production servers into a central storage server.

comment Method for offsite backup of EC2 servers?
I considered that. We have a tape library in the office, but I think bandwidth is too limited to pull backups from AWS. I'll have to test that to make sure. At first, I was hoping to reuse the EBS snapshots, but that seems impossible.
