Re: KVM Live Snapshots


So, I think this is kind of an elephant in the room.  

How do we get a standalone VM backup?  Or what is the best way to back up Cloudstack?

Right now we are making regular DB backups, and backing up secondary storage (for volume snapshots).  But in case of disaster, how do we recover this?

Is there third party software available?
