I’d like to create an archival backup of the state of my Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volume at a particular point in time, which I can restore to create copies of that volume. How can I do that?

To create an EBS snapshot, follow the instructions at Creating an Amazon EBS Snapshot.

Note: To help ensure data consistency, if the EBS volume is attached to an instance, first stop the instance.
