Copy RDS Snapshots Between AWS Accounts

Amazon announced the ability to share and copy RDS snapshots between AWS accounts. More information about the announcement can be seen here:

https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/amazon-rds-update-cross-account-snapshot-sharing/

Copying your RDS snapshots can be a valuable tool:

  • Make an extra copy of your data in another account to prevent complete data loss in the event of an account breach, as happened to Code Spaces.
  • Copy your production data to a development account

We have added support for RDS snapshot sharing to Skeddly actions:

  • Create RDS Snapshots - Once the RDS snapshot has been completed, it can be copied to another region and/or to another AWS account
  • Copy RDS Snapshots - Copy your RDS snapshots between regions and/or between accounts
