Learn how to schedule regular EBS snapshots and consider the backup policy that best fits their retention and cost needs.
- [Instructor] As I mentioned,…it's possible to take snapshots of your EBS volumes…to ensure that you have backups of your critical data.…Let's go into the EC2 section and see how this works.…I'll look at my two running instances…and highlight EBSDemo1.…If I scroll down in the description section,…I can see my block device.…This is my root volume and let's imagine…that this volume has some critical data on it…and I want to make sure that we back up.…I'll click on the device link and the volume ID.…
This conveys me to the Volume section…of the Elastic Block Store part of this menu.…So now I'm looking at the actual volume…that represents the EBS.…Since it's highlighted, I have an action up here…called Create Snapshot.…The volume ID is prefilled in…and I can give this Snapshot a name.…We'll call it EBSDemo1-root-volume-snapshot.…This is a critical data backup.…I'll click Create and then I'll get a message…that the creation of the snapshot has started.…
It'll take a few moments;…possibly longer if the drive is large.…
