EBS Recycle Bin is now available in the Asia Pacific (Jakarta) Region. You can use Recycle Bin for EBS Snapshots and EBS-backed AMIs to recover from accidental deletions to meet business continuity needs. Previously, if you accidentally deleted a snapshot, you would have to roll back to a snapshot from an earlier point in time, increasing your recovery point objective. It was also not possible to recover accidentally deregistered AMIs. With Recycle Bin, you can specify a retention time period and recover a deleted snapshot or a deregistered AMI before the expiration of the retention period. A recovered snapshot or AMI retains its attributes such as tags, permissions, and encryption status, which it had prior to deletion. Snapshots and AMIs that are not recovered from the Recycle Bin are permanently deleted upon expiration of the retention time.
