Back in 2019, I introduced you to Skeddly Projects . Projects is a feature in Skeddly that allows you to separate actions, credentials, managed backup plans, and managed start/stop plans. Almost like a mini Skeddly account within an account. Over the last few months, Skeddly’s Projects feature has been significantly enhanced. And I’m going to tell you all about the wonderful new features within Skeddly Projects.

It is very important to create backups for your crutial EC2 instances. While AWS provides mechanisms to increase availability, the cloud is not infallible. EC2 provides a native backup format for your EC2 instances in the way of AMI images. But storage costs of the AMI images can build over time.

Amazon DocumentDB is a managed MongoDB-compatible database service provided by AWS. It provides the database in clusters, with multiple instances, for high-availablity. To help with cost-reduction strategies, AWS allows DocumentDB clusters to be stopped and restarted. While the cluster is stopped, you’re not charged. So it’s a great candidate to shut off overnight and on weekends if it’s not needed.

In December, AWS announced the new VPC Reachability Analyzer tool. Using this tool, AWS can analyse the paths within your VPC to determine whether the various components in your VPC can communicate with each other or not.

Amazon S3 is a highly-scalable object storage system. Amazon S3 can contain any number of objects (files), and those objects can be organized into “folders”. However, to S3, folders don’t really exist. huh? That’s right. “Folders” are a human concept, applied to S3 keys for organizational purposes. But they’re nothing special to S3 itself. Before we begin, forget everything you know about the S3 Management Console.

Last October, we added Managed Backups. Managed Backups is a fantastic feature in Skeddly where you simply configure your backup plan, add resources to the plan, and Skeddly manages the actions used to create and delete your backups for you. Today, I’m going to introduce you to a similar feature for starting and stopping your cloud resources: Managed Start/Stops.

In January, AWS announced the ability to export RDS snapshots to S3. This new feature allows you to export your RDS data to S3 buckets in Apache Parquet format. Today, I’m happy to say that we’ve added a new action to help with this feature: Export RDS Snapshots. This new action will automate the process of exporting RDS snapshots to S3 on a daily basis.

MySQL is a popular open-sourced relational database server. It comes in many flavours, including Enterprise and Community editions. Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform all provide their own managed MySQL services. The available versions and features vary from provider to provider. As an added complexity, AWS provides three different MySQL services, each one of them different. Let’s take a closer look.
