I have a scenario where data is being aggregated in an EBS-backed AWS EC2 instance and, periodically, that instance is shut down and snapshot. Ideally, the snapshot of that volume needs to be exported and mounted on an airgapped server.
Supposing I have RHEL 7 running in both environments, is there a way to export the snapshot of an EBS volume and mount it to an on-prem server? If not, is there a pattern for Cloud -> on-prem migration?
It looks like AWS' Snowball is bi-directional. I'm not sure how that works in practice. Can I take an EBS volume snapshot, export it to a device, ship that device, and mount it locally?
