automated AWS snapshot with Ansible

automated AWS snapshot with Ansible

I use AWS infrastructure as a service (IaaS) heavily, both personally and professionally. I have a slew of all different types of instances, doing different types of things. In many cases, I’ll want backups; basically, AWS snapshots. I needed a way to quickly create and manage backups through the use of AWS snapshots in an automated fashion. Sounds like a job for Ansible - and that’s exactly what I did.
