Creating a Snapshot of an EBS Volume:

 

You can create a backup — called a snapshot — of any Eucalyptus EBS volume. You can create a snapshot by using the command-line tools or the Eucalyptus management console and simply specifying the volume from which you want to create the snapshot, along with a description of the snapshot. Snapshots can be used to create new volumes.

 

In the Management console, click on Snapshots and Create New Snapshot:


The progress bar will display as the snapshot process completes.  You can then view the availability of your snapshots in the snapshot window:




After the snapshot is complete, you are able to create a new volume from the snapshot and you can register the snapshot as a new image.
