FileMaker Cloud + AWS backups management

Hi all,


I am planning to move to FlieMaker Cloud with Amazon Web Services. So far I have watched several videos with guides and they mentioned I need the following 4 AWS infrastructure services:

  • EC2 instance
  • Elastic Block Storage (EBS)
  • Data transfer
  • Email messages


Those were helpful, however I didn't see any mention to backups. With the FileMaker Cloud web application there is a feature to keep backups, however if the server instance "blows up" in AWS the data will be probably lost, since the application and the database are both contained in the same .fmp file.


Has anyone came across with the same situation/thought? How do you manage your backups with FileMaker Cloud + AWS?


Thank you.
