[RFE][cinder] Non Disruptive Backup
Last modified: 2016-04-26 17:36:35 EDT
Currently a backup operation can only be performed when a volume is detached. This blueprint proposes to use a temporary snapshot or volume to do non-disruptive backup.
If a volume is attached, it has to be detached first before it can be backed up. This is not efficient and it disrupts normal operations by cloud users just to do a backup.
The use case is that an end user would like to do a backup without detaching the volume.
