Copy AMI Images Between AWS Accounts
Amazon announced the ability to copy AMI images between AWS accounts. More information about the announcement can be seen here:
Copying your AMI images can be a valuable tool:
- Make an extra copy of your images in another account to prevent complete data loss in the event of an account breach, as happened to Code Spaces.
- Copy your images between production and development accounts
Today, we have added support for the copying of AMI images to some of Skeddly’s actions:
- Create AMI Image - Once the AMI image has been completed, it can be copied to another region and/or to another AWS account
- Create Multiple AMI Images - Once the AMI images have been completed, they can be copied to another region and/or to another AWS account
- Copy AMI Images - Mass copy your AMI images between regions and/or between accounts
