Today, we are announcing that customers can create snapshots of their block storage data, including on-premises data using Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) direct APIs. With a set of API calls, customers can use snapshots to store data in Amazon Web Services China regions, regardless of where it resides. This enables customers to achieve business continuity in Amazon Web Services at lower cost.
Previously, customers did not have the ability to keep their on-premises data in a format like EBS snapshots that can be quickly and easily recovered into Amazon EBS volumes for use cases like disaster recovery.
