I would like your oppinions/experiences
Which is better - a backup or a snapshot ?
(and on an amazon server - which is cheaper)
Traditionally I would go with a backup - but had a few problems, so I tried a snapshot.
Both allow you to start a new server with the data
The backup however is the only one that can be restored to the original server.
But then with a snapshot you can just destroy the original server and start a new one from the snapshot.
So I am thinking is there any reason I should use a backup, and not just regularly schedule snapshots.
Any thoughts appreciated.
