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