5. Storage Design Examples : 5.1 vApp Snapshot : 5.1.2 Use Case
5.1.2 Use Case
This example shows how a consumer of public vCloud resources who is responsible for a two-tier application can manipulate snapshots at both the virtual machine level and the vApp level. This is especially useful for patching and testing where a rollback might be needed.
NoteSnapshots are not intended for use as a backup mechanism and generally should not be kept for long periods of time.
