Start up node and sync fast

What’s the fastest way of starting a new node and fetch all transaction? I tried creating an AMI from an up to date stack on EC2 (dockerized) in order to avoid the whole sync process but when starting a new EC2 from that AMI the cardano node takes around 30 minutes until it starts fetching transaction.

If you already had synced a node earlier you can just copy the db folder to the new server.

Wasn’t suppose to be there since i created an AMI from a running/synced stack?

AMI is a snapshot I guess? In which case everything including the synced blockchain should be automatically available. After restore the node still has to sync between the time the snapshot was restored and the current time. 30 minutes sounds very plausible.

Yes it’s a snapshot. It’s expected for the node to start sync from the time the snapshot was taken till current time, but this should be really fast as i created the ec2 as soon as i took the snapshot. Here’s the part of the logs showing the delay:

Any updates? I have the same issue…
