Backing up Data on VMs

This page describes common backup strategies for data on virtual machines in the VM Cluster ("SKY").

Infrastructure Backups

explain that we take snapshots of the VMs for catastrophic system recovery only; no data is backed up

Data Backups

explain that we do not backup data on VMs, and that it is up to the tenant to ensure their data is backed up. Common strategies are running a cron job, backing up to Lustre or PanFS, or something else.
