Backup and recovery strategies

Failures happen and flexVDI is not alien to them. Backing up your flexVDI platform is crucial to be able to recover from a data loss failure. There are two things that must be preserved:

  1. The flexVDI Manager database.
  2. The Guests' images.

This chapter will explain how to make a backup of and recover a flexVDI Manager instance, and will give an example of how to back up Guests' images with Bacula. You can adapt the example to your needs, or take ideas to implement your own.
