    Alternative to keeping snapshots for a while.  We need a quick/good VM/OS restore option.

    AndyAdmin Novice

      Hello,

       

      We have the need to keep snapshots for weeks or months, but this is a no-no when it comes to our VMWare admin's rules. 

       

      We do application installations/testing and take snapshots before we get started (so that we have a roll back point to before we started).  This may take months in some situations, and with our VMWare Admin's rules, we shouldn't keep the snapshots for any more than 48-Hours for performance reasons (because of the way snapshot technology works). 

       

      My question is:

      What is the alternative to snapshots for our situation? 

      Hopefully it's something as easy as snapshots...

       

      Your help is truly appreciated. 

       

      Thanks,

      Andy
