AWS EC2 Cloud Storage Acquisition with Evimetry

You have been tasked with forensic acquisition of 6 servers in the AWS cloud, with a total of 2TB of storage. How do you do it? This post will describe the method I applied in a recent case, where we collect the storage, acquired it into forensic images, and pulled down the images into our custody overnight. While I will be describing how I did it using Evimetry, the method is easily translatable to other tools.
