Managing Amazon Volumes and Snapshots
- Managing Amazon Volumes and Snapshots
On the instance's details page, the second row of tabs at the top allow you to manage many of the other functions and features that are part of your AWS environment.
Clicking on the "Volumes" tab will present you with a browse list showing all volumes attached to the instance. Example:
On the far right of the page, after each volume, you have two tools which allow you to:
- detach a volume from an instance.
- create a snapshot of the volume.
If you click on a specific volume, you will be presented with another details page which will provide you with more capabilities.
On the second row of the page, you have the following new tabs:
- allows you to display information about the volume.
- allows you to manage the volume's snapshots.
- allows you to append meaningful names or descriptions to the volumes.
- allows you to review the volume's activity and history.
Clicking on the "Snapshots" tab will present a different browser view, this time of all the snapshots associated with the volume.
Here, you have additional options which allow you to:
- create a new volume from a snapshot.
- copy a snapshot from one zone to another.
- delete a snapshot.
Clicking a particular snapshot will present yet another details page which will provide additional capabilities.
On the second row at the top, you can select these additional options:
- allows you to display information about the snapshot.
- allows you to append meaningful names or descriptions to the snapshot.
- allows you to review the snapshot's activity and history.
