In this lab we are going to automate the process of creating EBS snapshots using Lambda.
By the end of this lab you will learn how to create functions to take the snapshots, and how to schedule them to run every day, so you won't have to do it yourself.
You should be familiar with:
- AWS core services
Follow these steps to learn by building helpful cloud resources
Logging in to the Amazon Web Services Console
Your first step to start the Lab experience
Creating a Lambda function that takes EBS snapshots
In this step we are going to create the Lambda function that will take the EBS snapshots.
Testing the Lambda function
In this step we are going to test the Lambda function that we created in the last step
Automating the Snapshots creation
In this step, we are going to automate the snapshots creation by creating a Lambda function that will take the Volume IDs for us and create a CloudWatch Event to schedule the function.
