we have a website that's getting about 10k users everyday running on AWS instance/ebs (centos).
Now for test purposes I want to setup another replica webserver.
My question is, can I start a EBS snapshot process while the website is running? Would it work?
Also other question is that if I start the snapshot process, (it might take a few hours to complete) can I close my web browser while the snapshot process is running and login again to check status of snapshot?
Your expert assistance is appreciated. Thanks!
