Transcript

Automating your EBS Snapshots with Amazon Data Lifecycle Manager. In this course, you'll learn about Amazon Data Lifecycle Manager. You no longer need to manage snapshots using AWS Lambda, instead, you can do it within the AWS console. We're going to talk about the different types of policies you can create, automate, and monitor using Amazon DLM, along with a demo of how to get started. Hi, I'm Jon Myer and I'll be your trainer for this course. Feel free to follow me on social media; LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram.

Who should attend this course? If you're a Solutions Architect, Cloud Engineer with a huge passion for learning new or existing features around AWS, then this course is for you. Some of the learning objectives. During this course, we will define what Amazon Data Lifecycle Manager is, and when it was first released. The types of Data Lifecycle policies that are available along with creating a Data Lifecycle policy itself. After that, it doesn't make sense to do this manually but to automate EBS snapshot creations and removals by setting the frequency as to when the policy will run.

At the end of this course, I'll show you how to monitor the Data Lifecycle process to make sure snapshots are created and removed successfully. By the time you're done with this course, you'll be able to successfully set up and use Amazon Data Lifecycle Manager within your AWS account to manage new snapshots. Some quick prerequisites before we get started. You should have prior AWS Console knowledge. At least deployed an EC2 instance with an EBS (Elastic Block Store) volume or create an EBS volume within the console, including tagging those resources.
