AWS Create Images from EBS Snapshots


You can take block volume snapshots for various reasons like for backup/restore, create golden images, create a custom image which will serve for future auto scaling launch templates and may be for disaster recovery purposes (We will see in a later post on how to take the incremental snapshots on regular intervals using Life cycle manager)

In this post we will cover how to take block volume snapshots and create a custom image from this snapshot.

Step-1:
Go to EBS Volumes and create snapshot:


It may take some time for the initial snapshot to complete based on the amount of size of storage volume






Step-2:

From the snapshots plane, go to actions and select "create Image", this will create a custom AMI based on the snapshot that we just took.














Step-3:

Now go to Images  and you should see the image you just created in step-2




Step-4:

You can now launch a EC2 instance using the private image you just created.
