Generating a local backup of an AWS volume or snapshot
Yes, that's correct. We are running EC2 instances (Linux) and wish to back up the data on those volumes locally. The reason for "locally" is I just want a long term backup that's in my hands. Of course the Amazon snapshots are my go-to when "it" hits the fan though.
In order to download the backups, must they first copy to your cloud backup services, or do you think I can avoid any recurring cloud storage costs with option 1?
And specifically which product do I need? You said... "perpetually licensed CloudBerry backup products". Is this what you're referring to? https://www.msp360.com/backup/linux.aspx
