Finally, go to the Amazon S3 control panel, and create a bucket in the chosen region:
Initiating the backup
We're now ready to initiate the backup. This can take a while, so let's open a screen session so that we can terminate the SSH session and check back later. sudo apt-get install screen screen
Initiate the backup: sudo duply test backup
Press Esc-D to detach the screen session.
Check back a few hours later. Login to your server and reattach your screen session: …
…install , there are a lot of rount-trips between the server, our satis and Github (or Amazon S3).
One of my first ideas was to to get around a continous reinstall by symlinking the vendor directory between releases. This doesn't work consistently for two reasons:
What's a release?
A release is the checkout/clone/download of your application and lives in /srv/www : srv/ └── www └── my_app …
"A bucket is a container for objects stored in Amazon S3. When creating a bucket, you can choose ato optimize for latency", that is what mentioned in the guide, so I chose as it is closest to my location.
Now if you have chosen " The documentation in heroku did mentioned that some international users may need to override …standard" region, things will work out much straightforward, any non-us region will need some tweaks in the configuration.
…Auto Scaling can save costs by better matching demand and capacity. Certainly not a new idea but the diagrams, different leakage scenarios (daily spike, weekly fluctuation, seasonal spike), and the explanation of potential savings (substantial) are well done.
Use Amazon S3 Object Expiration feature to delete old backups, logs, documents, digital media, etc. A leakage of ~20 TB adds up to a tidy ~ 1650 USD a year.
Whatever you find and use — make a copy of it and put it on Amazon S3 or the local network. With larger teams even a local Ubuntu mirror (or whatever you use) can come in handy.
This includes base boxes, packages, etc.. Nothing is more annoying than waking up and not being able to bootstrap your VMs because someone decided to remove something in order to force you to upgrade.
Don't dumb it down!

Philosophy on backups
It is a good idea to schedule both logical and binary backups. They each have their use cases and add redundancy to your backups. If there is an issue with your backup, it's likely not to affect the other tool.
Store your backups on more than one server.
In addition to local copies, store backups offsite. Look at the cost of S3 or S3+Glacier, it's worth the peace of mind!
Test your backups, and if you have a …

…application data are replicated to the new location. We also recommend storing assets separately, using Amazon S3, for example, to keep them in sync.
Once you have everything replicated to a different location, it is as easy as updating your DNS settings to use that IP address. When an event affects your primary location, you simply lower the TTL (time to live) in your DNS configuration and change the IP.
