AWS Backup adds support for Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) instance backup

AWS Backup automates backup and recovery jobs for Amazon EC2 instances without the need for custom scripts or third-party solutions, saving time and simplifying the backup process. Customers that use EC2 instances will now be able to perform their data protection requirements at the EC2 level, backing up both the Amazon Machine Instance (AMI) and the attached Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volumes. You can now select an EC2 instance from the AWS Backup console, take an on-demand backup, or assign EC2 instances to a backup plan.
