Course Description

In this challenge, you will configure automated snapshots of the Elastic Block Store (EBS) volumes on your web servers. First, you will create tags for your volumes. Next, you will create an Amazon Data Lifecycle Manager (DLM) lifecycle policy that uses an hourly schedule, and then you will verify that a snapshot was created. Finally, you will replace the root volume on a web server by using a snapshot. Note: Once you begin the challenge lab, you will not be able to pause, save, or exit and then return to your challenge lab. Please ensure that you have set aside enough time to complete the challenge lab before you start.
