Managed Instances is an easy way to manage your EC2 instances. Define your start/stop, backup and delete backups schedules and let Skeddly manage the actions on your behalf. Until now, the backups were done using EBS snapshots.
This week, Managed Instances has been enhanced to support AMI images as the backup mechanism. This new option is available in your managed instance configuration, so some instances in the same schedule group can create EBS snapshots and others can create AMI images. AMI image is the new default.
For those of you using Managed Instances, give the new option a try and let us know how it works for you.
