How to Migrate (Copy) EC2 Instance Between Amazon AWS Regions

Move EC2 instance Between AWS Cloud RegionsAWS is ideally suited for making the user’s applications tolerant to disaster. One of the options for making the user’s application suitable to DR is to keep a back up of the data / application setup in multiple regions. If the first region is not reachable due to some reason, the user can start the application from the other region.  In Dec, 2021 AWS introduced functionality to copy snapshot across regions.

This guide demonstrates how to copy a snapshot of a Linux based instance to another region as well as attach a volume to a new instance to complete the instance data migration across regions.

How to Allocate or Release an AWS Elastic IP (EIP)

Elastic IP addresses are static IP addresses designed for Amazon cloud. An Elastic IP address belongs to the user’s AWS account and is not bound to a particular instance. The user can control the elastic IP address until the user explicitly releases it. However, unlike traditional static IP addresses, Elastic IP addresses help the user to achieve high availability as it allows to script the usage of an IP address and reallocate it in a glance to other instance in the same region when the instance or availability zone fails. An AWS account can have a maximum of 5 elastic IPs per region. If you like extend this limit you can apply for more Elastic IP address here.

This guide demonstrates how to allocate or release an Elastic IP for an AWS account.

Dissecting Amazon Elastic Load Balancer (ELB): 18 Facts You Should Know

Amazon ELB iconLoad balancing in the cloud is different from the traditional load-balancing and must support scalability and elasticity on the fly. Traditional Load Balancers also require additional maintenance, expertise and management effort from IT ops. This means additional cost. Also, over provisioning of Load Balancers in terms of capacity or numbers will cause unnecessary cost leakage.
