Create Windows VSS Snapshots By Schedule

Automate VSS Snapshot creation with tag targeting and schedule

  • Select which disks to snapshot

    Identify which Windows instances you want to back up and then create snapshots of the attached disks. You can optionally target which instances to snapshot by tag groups, account and/or region.

  • Create a rule

    Determine how regularly you want to create a VSS snapshot from an instance by setting a schedule. Additionally you can tag the new shapshot with tags copied from the instance, 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 assign permissions to your team to snooze or cancel any occurrence of a snapshot function.
