I have a local dd image myimage.bin, which I want to use to create an AWS EBS volume.
The only way I can figure out how to do this is to,
1) Launch an AWS instance
2) Create and attach an EBS volume
3) scp the local myimage.bin to the AWS instance
4) Restore the myimage.bin to the EBS volume from within the instance
Is there no direct way to restore the image directly to an EBS volume or create an EBS volume from a local image via API?
Also the process of scp'ing a GB image is very slow. Even with a high network instance.
