Amazon EBS crash-consistent snapshot ability now available in Asia Pacific (Osaka) Region
Starting today, Amazon EBS crash-consistent snapshot ability is available in Asia Pacific (Osaka) Region. You can now take crash-consistent snapshots across multiple EBS volumes in an EC2 instance with a single API call. Backup data across multiple volumes is in sync and the restore of EBS volumes is accurate. Since snapshots are automatically taken across multiple EBS volumes, you no longer need to stop your instance or coordinate between volumes to ensure crash-consistency.
