Is there a way to write a prefect flow to snapshot a DB?

Hey @Arun Giridharan, Definitely! I think many of the details will come down to use case specifics like the type of database, access, etc, but as long as you can accomplish this using Python - you are able to orchestrate with P. Perhaps others have experience with this particular use case and its challenges.

Cool! I was thinking about a way to snapshot an Amazon RDS. I know we can do it from the Amazon CLI, but I'm not sure how to do it with Python?

If you can do it from the AWS CLI, then likely you can use the Python boto3 library to do the same thing.
