How do I back up my Amazon EBS volumes?

1 minute read

I want to back up my Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volumes, but I don't know how to do it.


To back up your Amazon EBS volumes, use Amazon EBS snapshots.

Use the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) console, or the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) to create a snapshot. Make sure that you create the snapshot in the same AWS Region as the volume. You can also create multi-volume snapshots that are point-in-time snapshots of volumes that are attached to an Amazon EC2 instance. To automate snapshot creation and retention, you can use Amazon Data Lifecycle Manager.

Note: Creating snapshots incurs charges. You're billed for the amount of data that you store. For more information, see How is my Amazon EBS snapshot bill calculated?
