Common Methods of Red Hat Backup for Virtual Machines
The Built-in Red Hat Backup Feature
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) software contain a dedicated "Snapshots" function, allowing Red Hat backup and restore with a single click. This tool is simple and stable, but lacks any automation, which problem is common for most administrative-level backup methods.
Backup scripts are the most common methods among the "advanced" administrators and other IT staff. Scripts allow flexibility and some level of automation. However, using (not mentioning writing) scripts requires some skills and experience; in other ways, it can cause many disastrous consequences!
