Copies a point-in-time snapshot of an Amazon EBS volume and stores it in Amazon S3. You can copy the snapshot within the same region or from one region to another. You can use the snapshot to create Amazon EBS volumes or Amazon Machine Images (AMIs). The snapshot is copied to the regional endpoint that you send the HTTP request to.
Copies of encrypted Amazon EBS snapshots remain encrypted. Copies of unencrypted snapshots remain unencrypted.
