Earlier today, we announced our Create Lightsail Instance Snapshots action. Creating snapshots is a great practice, but you will also want to clean up old snapshots. This way, you won’t accumulate costs for unnecessary backups.
Today, we are also announcing the second of our Lightsail actions: Delete Lightsail Instance Snapshots.
Using this action, you can delete old Lightsail snapshots on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Snapshots can be selected by:
With snapshots selected, you have a couple of deletion schemes to choose from.
In addition, you can choose to group your Lightsail snapshots by their originating instance name, allowing you to treat each group independently.
This new action is available today.
Full pricing information for this action can be found on our pricing page.
