Welcome to this live hands-on AWS lab for performing a backup and restore using AMIs and EBS.

This lab will explore several common backup and restore methods for the Amazon EC2 service. By completing this lab, you will gain hands-on experience with:

  • EBS snapshots
  • Amazon Machine Images (AMIs)

For administrators and operations personnel, it is extremely important to understand the need for backing up application resources. These actions are one step you can take to ensure quick recovery from disasters and/or to have the ability to roll back changes if necessary.

Good luck, and enjoy the lab!
