Title: METHOD FOR LEVERAGING HYPERVISOR FUNCTIONALITY FOR MAINTAINING APPLICATION CONSISTENT SNAPSHOTS IN A VIRTUALIZATION ENVIRONMENT
Abstract:
A method for leveraging hypervisor functionality for maintaining application consistent snapshots in a virtualization environment deployed by the hypervisor includes utilizing the hypervisor to generate a hypervisor-specific application consistent snapshot of a virtual machine running in the virtualization environment, taking a storage controller specific application consistent snapshot of the hypervisor-specific application consistent snapshot of the virtual machine, and logically deleting the hypervisor-specific application consistent snapshot.
