In our recent post ‘How to configure VM backups in oVirt‘, we saw how we configured a VM backup system for a cloud service provider. We further went ahead and expanded the backup system with oVirt engine backups.
oVirt engine manages the centralized configuration of the cloud system. This engine manages provisioning of VMs, connection protocols, user sessions, VM images, VM environment configuration, etc. It also provides a graphical interface to view, create and manage VMs. The engine configuration is saved in oVirt engine database and configuration files.
