How are you folks doing your hypervisor level backups?

Under ESXi I used GhettoVCB which basically took a snap shot, copied the 
disk image to another location, then deleted the snap.

I haven't been able to find too much information on how this can be done 
with ovirt.  I see discussions on the new backup API, but I'm not 
interested in spending big bucks on an enterprise backup solution for a 
home lab.

Only discussion I saw on using snapshots for backups said don't do it 
because the tools don't sync memory when the snapshots are taken.
