VMware Snapshot

VMware Snapshot

What Is VMware Snapshot?

VMware snapshots are used to back up VMs and data. If server operations are incorrect or website data needs to be restored, all systems can be restored using the snapshots.


VMware Snapshot allows you to back up VMware Elastic Cloud Servers (ECSs), and use the backup data to restore the VMware ECSs. This avoids irreversible loss caused by misoperations.

Application Scenarios

If a misoperation occurs during the use of products provided by VMware Service, you can use the snapshots to restore VMware ECSs. Figure 37-14 shows the details.

Component Type

Component Name


VMware Service console


Provides the UI for VMware EVS Console.

Services of VMware EVS


Processes the operation request of VMware EVS Console.


Sorts and filters VMware EVS operation requests.


Processes VMware EVS operation tasks.

Common component


Provides level-1 load balancing.


Provides level-2 load balancing.


Provides domain name parsing and time synchronization capabilities.

API Gateway

Allows a third-party application to call VMware EVS APIs.


Provides a scalable platform that lays a foundation for virtualization management. VMware Service takes over EVS resources from the vCenter resource pool to ManageOne.

Resource pool


Provides identity identification and access management for VMware EVS.

Management domain


Provides the function of metering and charging resources.


Figure 37-16 shows the VMware EVS workflow.

Figure 37-16 VMware EVS workflow
  1. VDC administrators or VDC operators apply for VMware EVS disks from the ManageOne operation plane. VMware Service delivers the operation requests to Storage for processing.
  2. Scheduler filters and sorts the processed operation requests.
  3. CoreTask processes tasks in sequence.
  4. API Gateway distributes the requests for vCenter systems.

Related Services

Accessing and Using VMware Snapshot

FusionCloud provides a web-based service management platform. Specifically, users can access the service using the ManageOne operation plane or API.

  • ManageOne operation plane

    Users can use the ManageOne operation plane to access the cloud service. If you are a VDC administrator, VDC operator, or have the operation rights of the cloud service, you can directly log in to the ManageOne operation plane and choose this cloud service under the Product List or Console menu.

  • API

    To integrate the cloud service into a third-party system for secondary development, use the corresponding API to access this service. For details, see the FusionCloud 6.3.0 API Reference.
