Hyper-V Snapshot

What Is Hyper-V Snapshot?

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


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

Application Scenarios

A snapshot is a record of the status of an ECS at a specific time point. If a VM is faulty or services are required, the VM status is restored to the snapshot time point. You can restore the Hyper-V ECS using backups, as shown in Figure 41-10.
