The tasks area in Ylastic is great. I was wondering if you guys were thinking of a possible task that would be able to snapshot EBS volumes by tag (which you support now) and then migrating them to another region.

The main idea behind this would be for data volumes. Knowing that certain tagged data volumes are available in multiple regions as backups, or to possibly be attached to instances in another region, etc.

    We have been mulling over doing something like this. Have not started work on this yet. Will certainly add this to pur list.

    1. This would be an excellent addition. We already do daily and weekly snapshots of our data drives. It would be really great if we could get them "mirrored" so to speak to another region in case of an outage/disaster in our main region.
