Starting today, Amazon Data Lifecycle Manager (DLM) for EBS Snapshots is available in the Europe (Milan) and Africa (Cape Town) regions. DLM provides a simple, automated way to back up data stored on EBS volumes. With this feature, you no longer have to rely on custom scripts to create and manage your EBS volume backups.  

To get started, tag your EBS volumes and start creating lifecycle policies via DLM. You can create the policies in the AWS Management Console, from the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) or via the DLM APIs.

With this expansion, DLM is now available in all public AWS Regions and AWS GovCloud (US).
