Qaisar shows you how to
create an EBS snapshot
based on an EBS volume


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.
