Backups (AWS)

Backups (AWS)


This article describes how to backup your Matillion ETL instance using AWS's Snapshot feature. For the full AWS documentation see EBS Snapshots.


Where possible we recommend using the built-in backup functions within Matillion ETL.

While we do our best to ensure updates go smoothly, you should take an EBS snapshot of the AMI root volume to provide a restore point in case of any problems.


  1. In the EC2 Management Console locate the Instance running Matillion ETL and select it.
  2. Find Root devices and then select the EBS ID of the volume.
  3. Right click on the volume and select Create Snapshot.
  4. Enter a Name and Description for your snapshot.
