Does AWS Backup guarantees No Reboot to EC2 instances?

0

Hi AWS,

I would like to use AWS Backup Service to backup my EC2 instances. However, does AWS Backup Service reboot my EC2 instances? I hope it does not.

Previously, I am using lambda function to automatically create AMI images. I had this "NoReboot=True" flag in my create_image function.

Hence, does AWS Backup guarantees No Reboot to EC2 instances? My EC2 instance cannot afford to have a downtime.

Hi,

AWS Backup does not reboot EC2 instances at any time. When backup calls CreateImage API, NoReboot=True parameter would be passed by default, so EC2 doesn't shut down the instance before creating the image.
