Snapshots let you go back in time
When managing infrastructures and applications, the ability to go back is a key part of your overall security. Volume snapshots give you peace of mind when working with important data during tasks like updating or cleaning databases. With this service, you can "capture" the status of a volume's information at a given time, while carrying on using it as normal. You can then restore the your data to its state at the time the snapshot was taken, should this ever prove necessary.
