Create EBS Snapshots By Schedule

Automate EBS Snapshot creation with tag targeting and schedule

  • Select which EBS volumes to snapshot

    Identify which volumes you want to back up and then create snapshots of those attached EBS volumes. You can optionally target which volumes to snapshot by tag groups, account and/or region.

  • Create a rule

    Determine how regularly you want to create a snapshot from an EBS volume by setting a schedule. Additionally you can tag the new shapshot with tags copied from the volume, tags from the instance or specific new tags.

  • Let the magic happen

    When its time to create your snapshot you’ll receive an alert via Slack, HipChat, E-mail or SMS to remind you that it’s happening. You can combine this with our Scheduled EBS deletion rules to manage the full lifecycle of EBS.
