We are again proud to announce adding Lightsail as a native/provider backup solution to SnapShoooter.

From the SnapShooter Console, you can now connect as many different Amazon Lightsail accounts as you wish, using IAM policies in AWS to authenticate securely with us.

SnapShooter will make a snapshot image that can be used to launch new instances.

This, comes with the same fantastic scheduling system that all of our backups have, from daily to hourly snapshots, with retention policies built-in for hourly, daily, weekly and monthly—no need to configure four different jobs.

Snapshots are billed at 0.05$ per GB per month directly by Amazon and backups stay securely within your account.
