Amazon EBS direct APIs is now available in the AWS Asia Pacific (Jakarta) Region, enabling customers to create Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) snapshots of their block storage data regardless of where it resides, including on-premises. Customers can use EBS direct APIs to backup their on-premises workloads to EBS snapshots that can be quickly and easily recovered into EBS volumes for use cases like disaster recovery.

EBS direct APIs also provides the ability for backup providers to track incremental changes on EBS volumes via EBS snapshots and streamline their workflows to reduce backup times by up to 70%. This enables them to provide more granular recovery point objectives (RPOs) to customers at lower costs.

Amazon EBS direct APIs is available in all public AWS Regions and AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. To learn more, see Use Amazon EBS direct APIs to access the contents of an Amazon EBS snapshot
