I want to backup openstack. Specifically I want to backup all the VMs I have created. We are starting to become dependent on it and I would hate to lose progress. How to you backup the VMs at a file system level and restore those backups? Is there an easy cinder/nova command that will copy the VMs to an external drive for you?

Hi, There are many ways to back up VM's and the different OpenStack Services.

Backup VMs by using the instance snapshot feature. Taking Snapshots.
Backup the different services of OpenStack. Backup and Recovery.

Taken from the awesome OpenStack Operations guide :) Do check it out when time permits. Cheers.
