Create and Copy EBS Snapshots to Another Region and Account

Creating Amazon EBS snapshots allows you to copy those snapshots to another region and/or AWS account. Copying your EBS snapshots can be a valuable tool:

  • Make an extra copy of your data in another region or account to prevent complete data loss in the event of an account breach, as happened to Code Spaces.
  • Copy your production data to a development account

We have added support for copying EBS snapshots between regions and account to all of the following Skeddly actions:
