Subject Re: KVM Live VM Snapshots
Date Mon, 19 Dec 2016 13:01:02 GMT
There is a pending PR awaiting merge that added VM snapshots to ACS for KVM.

In regards to why it hasn't been merged, that's a good question. Why don't you comment on
the PR and ask that question. Community involvement is the best way to get features moving

I do agree though with Macro that snapshots are not really designed for BCDR purposes.

Hi Asai,

In my opinion, doing a VM snapshot is making a step in the wrong direction.
Your applications/system running inside your VMs should be designed to
handle an OS crash. Then a new VM, freshly installed, should be able to get
back into your application setup so that you have again an appropriate
number of healthy nodes.
