johnyfork Posted February 7, 2022 Share Posted February 7, 2022 I am application developer and don't know much about virtual machine(VM). however, our application is resided on a VM. frequent patch need be apply to fix/update this application. For diaster recovery, It was suggest to backup every thing on the server. so, once server is restored, no application need be re-installed and configured. our network administrator thinks it can be done by cloning VM. but if we want to backup the clone to a tape. it would expose VM to backup drive. any one who can access to it can erase the VM and every thing would be gone. it is very risky. I would appreciate it if you could let me what you think on this or any suggestion. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
