Hi Nir, Pavan
On reading more from the article, we have some questions which we will like to discuss in the call
- Irrespective of the underlying storage, we will always restore the data as raw. But it’s not very clear to us how the disk format conversion will be taken care of internally by RHV.
Conversion from raw data to qcow format will only work for disk marked to be incremental or it is not specific to that only.
Would rhv stage the data before conversion to qcow2.
For this feature( incremental backup) to work, disks have to be marked as such. User needs to mark those disks as incrementals while creating VM, otherwise this will not work.
If we use incremental backups, then will there not be a backing file. Do we have to upload the entire image and then rhv would convert to qcow. What if we want to just upload just the incremental part/changes relative to some base image.
