Creating a DB Cluster Snapshot in Neptune - Amazon Neptune

Creating a DB Cluster Snapshot in Neptune

Neptune creates a storage volume snapshot of your DB cluster, backing up the entire DB cluster and not just individual databases. When you create a DB cluster snapshot, you need to identify which DB cluster you are going to back up. Then give your DB cluster snapshot a name so that you can restore from it later. The amount of time it takes to create a DB cluster snapshot varies with the size of your databases. The snapshot includes the entire storage volume. So the size of files (such as temporary files) also affects the amount of time it takes to create the snapshot.

You can create a DB cluster snapshot using the AWS Management Console, the AWS CLI, or the Neptune API.
