VM Snapshot Backup

A snapshot is a copy of a VM at a certain point in time. It captures the state, data, and hardware configuration of a running VM. It provides a quick and easy way to backup and restore a VM to a previous state. Having an easy way to revert a VM to a previous state is extremely handy when performing risky tasks. For example, if you are applying an update or a patch to the software running on your VM and you make a mistake, you can revert your VM to a previous working state using a snapshot backup.
