Wondering if someone can clarify something for me please.
Within opennebula you can create snapshots and also save the disk image as via disksaveas.
I am looking at a way to store the current status of a couple of important VM’s for long term now I have reached a point where I am happy for them to be reverted back to if anything breaks.
Which is the best way to do this I know snapshots will bloat over time but when I use disk saveas it also says snapshot so wondeirng if this new image is still written to if I make changes to the live image.
If both ways bloat what is the best way to backup a VM as is e.g. whats the file location of the running VM and could I just back this up offisite for example.
