scheduled Amazon EBS volume 
snapshots using Amazon CloudWatch


How can I automate the creation of Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volume snapshots?

You can create an Amazon CloudWatch Event rule to schedule automated snapshots of an EBS volume. For instructions, see Tutorial: Schedule Automated Amazon EBS Snapshots Using CloudWatch Events.

Note: Before you begin, be sure to have the IDs of the EBS volumes that you want to create snapshots from.
