Mistake #6: Taking too Few or No EBS Snapshots

Mistake #6: Taking too Few or No EBS Snapshots

One of the handiest features of AWS is EBS Snapshots – the ability to create virtual copies of EBS Volumes at a specific point in time. Snapshots offer an adequate instrument to perform backups of EBS Volumes, and are also efficient: only the data blocks that have changed in the volume since your last snapshot are saved. It comes as a surprise that with such an easy facility for volume backups, we still find so many volumes with no or too few snapshots.
