Support for Openstack/Cloudstack/Onapp Hypervisor level backups

Postby netriplex » Wed May 28, 2014 6:19 am

Is there a way to backup entire virtual servers that are deployed on Openstack/Cloudstack/or OnApp similar to functionality of Hyper-V / VMWare "hypervisor level" backups? Maybe not the same point and click type of situation, but is there a way to do it?

The unfortunate thing is that each of those can use multiple Hypervisors. VMware, KVM, Xen, and HyperV. If your stack is running on top of VMware or HyperV you can do that now. I believe you could setup Ahsay to backup the backup node of OnApp.

Thanks!

True they can.

I guess I was more specifically referring to the KVM hypervisor.

I've been backing up KVM for a while, though it's not nightly. I just load an OBM on the node and use the pre-post command to pause the VM. On cluster nodes, if you use a shared account, you can just use cluster service commands. You have to get create sometimes, but it works for what I'm doing.

I have not setup openstack yet, though I have heard that it may be supported in the future.
