Subject Re: [Feature Request] VM Snapshot based on KVM+Ceph
Date Tue, 12 Jul 2016 03:58:25 GMT
This is a feature that has been missing from Cloudstack since the beginning when using KVM
as the hypervisor. 
It's been asked for many times but still no support. 
This would be a huge plus for Cloudstack if this feature was added and make it a much more
viable product for end users. 
KVM is usually chosen because 1: it's free 2: it has many features that make it a much better
choice for large installations. 
Many have ended up either writing their own VM snapshot solution, or simply hiding the icon
from the customer. 
I'm surprised that after years of waiting for this feature to be added, it's still missing.

I know it's not totally the Cloudstack Dev team's fault that VM Snapshots are missing from
KVM support but I do think this is a list opportunity for a big win if they did something
about it. 

Just my 2 penneth on this subject that has plagued me on a daily basis supporting Cloudstack
installs. 

Regards
Paul
