This right here. Needed a backup solution to snapshot a running DB that literally took hours to import as a MySQL dump. Grabbed an rsync image, spin down the db image, mount the data volume to the rsync image and pulled the whole db out in 8 minutes.

Restored the snapshot in 5 minutes. So much nicer.
