AWS launches EBS direct APIs that provide read access to EBS snapshot data, enabling backup providers to achieve faster backups of EBS volumes at lower costs
Today, we are announcing EBS direct APIs for Snapshots that provide read access to EBS snapshots. Backup providers can now easily track incremental changes on EBS volumes via EBS snapshots and streamline their workflows to reduce backup times by up to 70%. This enables them to provide more granular recovery point objectives (RPOs) to AWS customers at lower costs.
