Serverless Code with Amazons AWS and Claudia
I recently have been on a serverless kick. What is that you ask? Well, it means running code in the cloud without managing any server resources or having a server operating system that is always running. Even better, you only pay for resources when your code is executing. Hosting solutions have been around for a long time, but they typically run all the time, and you pay for that (also you might have to manage and update your server).
Backup your servers automatically to Amazon AWS S3
This post will explain how I backup mine and my clients Linux servers to Amazon’s S3 file storage service via bash shell scripts. It’s cheap, quick, and it takes care of off-site backups. I prefer to use a different provider than my hosting company in case of major system disruption. I hope everyone has great documentation on how to stand up a new server! With this design, it gives you ultimate control over how many backups you want, and how long to keep them.
