Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) now supports Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS) enabled EBS snapshots for Windows Server AMIs in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by SINNET, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Regions, operated by NWCD.

With this launch, you can now take VSS-enabled EBS snapshots of your running Windows instances without the need to create custom scripts, or shutting down the instances. To read more about this capability go to the Amazon Web Services documentation.
