EC2: Automating Backups with the Boto3 SDK

Length: 00:13:34

Lesson Summary: As we have seen, EC2 does not provide an automated backup solution directly. The first option we discussed was using CloudWatch Events to create snapshots of EBS volumes. We can also script snapshot creation using API calls. This lesson shows a method using the Boto3 SDK to create snapshots of your EBS volumes all at once without having to know any attributes of the volume itself. NOTE: The code for this lesson is available in the course Downloads.
