That would depend a lot on the context in which you saw that phrase.

For example most database management systems (DBMS) create "instances" for running databases. They also allow for "dumping" the database data to ascii files (usually for importing into another database or reimporting in the same one after you've rebuilt schemas).

However other products use the term "instance" for entirely different concepts and "dumping" of that "instance" may have a totally different connotation.
