If you are looking to backup your VMs/workloads (as opposed to your databases or OpenStack configuration info), you may want to check out http://www.convirture.com/solutions_backup_openstack.php (http://www.convirture.com/solutions_b...) . The product is going into beta testing early next year.

Which type?

If you use VMs based on volumes then you can backup the cinder-volumes LVM or wherever you stored the volumes and the Cinder db and with that you will pretty much backed up the data with an easy rescue option.

If you use VMs based on images I read about making the compute nodes fylesystem on top of a glusterFS and use gluster to backup it.

Or you can just read this: http://docs.openstack.org/openstack-ops/content/backup_and_recovery.html (http://docs.openstack.org/openstack-o...)
