Dear all, what is the difference between Snapshot and Backup in the context of Trove (o Reddwarf) database backups that I see (here)?

Is it maybe the following:

  • backup = copy of volume in which data are stored;
  • snapshot = copy of volume plus virtual machine used to host the engine?

Are they the same concept?

Trove does not support (yet) snapshots.
