- A snapshot is a copy of a persistent disk…at a specific point in time.…As such, it's suitable for use as a backup…or as a disk image to generate additional disks.…Snapshots are considered global resources,…so they can be brought into play in any zone or region.…In this lesson I'll demonstrate how to create a snapshot…and then apply it to creating a new instance.…To begin the process of creating a snapshot,…go to your project console and then navigate to Compute,…Compute Engine, Snapshots.…
This screen, of course, will contain a list…of any snapshots you've created.…So we have none yet.…Let's go ahead and click New snapshot.…First, give your snapshot a name.…There's no need to reference the disk…the snapshot is based on or the time when it was created,…as both details will be displayed in the list of snapshots.…So I'll just make mine lynda-snapshot-1.…Skip over that Description and then select a disk.…
Now these are all the source disks that we have.…Let's go ahead and use lynda-instance-1,…which is the disk that was created with my first instance…
