How to backup a vCloud VM created with Fast Provisoning ?

I am using vCloud Director since several months and has been really impressed by the new Fast Provisionning feature which leverages Linked Clone (like in VMWare workstation), but as a backup specialist the first question I had was to know the impact on the backup strategy.

This record shows how EMC Avamar allows to backup a VM in a VMWare vCloud Director environment. The VM is provisioned using the new Fast Provisioning feature (also known as Linked Clone) of vCloud Director. It also shows how to recover the complete VM using the Change Block Tracking feature.

Other records are available on my blog at http://www.recorditblog.com
