Automate EC2 Backups

Automate EC2 backups with tag targeting and schedules

Choose EC2 instances to backup

Identify which EC2 resources you want to back up and then create backups of those attached EBS volumes. Identify which instances to back up by account, regions and tags using advanced logic.


Create a rule

Determine a schedule for taking EC2 backups within GorillaStack’s simple User Interface. You can take the backup with tags copied from the EC2 instance or from the volume. If you prefer you can specify new tags for your backup.


Integrations for full automation control

When the time comes to back up your EC2 instance you’ll get alerted via ChatOps, webhook or email to let you know that it’s about to happen. You can combine backups with automated EBS deletion capabilities to manage the full EBS lifecycle.
