Snapshot your progress. Secure your data.


The Advantages of Snapshots

Snapshots are point-in-time copies of data, files, or virtual machine images, that can be used for a variety of purposes. Snapshots are a versatile and cost-effective way to protect data, test and develop applications, support disaster recovery, and save time.

Data Protection

Snapshots provide a quick and easy way to protect data. If there is a data loss or corruption issue, a snapshot can be used to restore the data to a previous state, minimizing the risk of data loss.


Snapshots can be created and restored quickly, saving time and reducing downtime. This is especially important for businesses that need to maintain high levels of availability and uptime.
Easy Use Icon


Snapshots are often less expensive than other backup or data protection solutions. This is because they use less storage and can be created and deleted quickly.

What Is Nice To Know

What are Snapshots of Volumes?

In OpenStack, a snapshot of a volume is a point-in-time copy of the data stored on a block storage volume. Snapshots are useful for creating backups, restoring data, and cloning volumes.

When you take a snapshot of a volume, the data on the volume is temporarily frozen, and a copy of the data is created. The snapshot contains all of the data that was on the volume at the time the snapshot was taken, including any changes that were made since the volume was created. Once the snapshot is complete, the data on the volume can be modified and new snapshots can be taken as needed.

Can I use a Snapshot for Disaster Recovery?

Yes, you can use a snapshot of a volume for disaster recovery purposes in OpenStack. Snapshots provide a convenient way to create a backup of the data on a volume at a specific point in time, which can be used to restore the volume in case of data loss or corruption.

To use a snapshot for disaster recovery, you would typically create and maintain regular snapshots of your critical volumes, such as your database, application, or file server volumes. You can then use these snapshots to restore your data to a previous state in case of a disaster, such as a hardware failure or a software bug that results in data corruption.

To perform a disaster recovery operation using a snapshot, you would typically create a new volume from the snapshot, and then attach the new volume to a new instance. You can then use the new instance to access and restore your data from the snapshot.


How to minimize the performance impact of taking a Snapshot?

To minimize the impact on performance, it’s a good idea to schedule snapshot creation during periods of low activity, or to use tools that allow you to create snapshots without blocking write operations, such as incremental snapshots. You can also consider using dedicated backup tools that are designed to minimize the impact on performance, such as backup agents that run on the instances themselves.
