Current availability zone: us-east-1
Available regions: eu-west-1 sa-east-1 us-east-1 ap-northeast-1 us-west-2 us-west-1 ap-southeast-1 ap-southeast-2

  • execute script with volume id to copy it's snapshot
  • it detects current availability zone using ec2metadata output ( laziness FTW )
  • sets endpoint for current zone, checking if volume exists, if yes - checking for snapshots and picking latest one.
  • switching ( in background ) endpoint to desired one, copying snapshot
  • returning ID of our source snapshot copy, in new region.
