Re: [opensuse] virtual machines great for backups by instant snapshots
Adam Tauno Williams said the following on 10/24/2012 10:06 AM:
These same properties can be acquired without a virtual machine. LVM
provides snapshots, and btrfs provides snapshots. I've been using LVM
snapshots of data directories for years, it works great.


Bother LVM and BtrFS offer other advantages and facilities depending on
your context.

The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if
there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing
but blind pitiless indifference.
