Create a Snapshot of a VM Instance
A VM snapshot is an instantaneous duplicate of an instance. A snapshot of an instance can be used to back-up data, to create a restore point, or as the basis of an instance and booted up at a later time. A snapshot can be booted as a new VM Instance and contains an image of the state of the filesystem at the moment that the snapshot is taken.
