QNAP Snapshot Agent

QNAP Snapshot Agent enables QTS to take application-consistent snapshots of iSCSI LUNs on VMware or Microsoft servers. Application-consistent snapshots record the state of running applications, virtual machines, and data. When QTS takes a LUN snapshot, QNAP Snapshot Agent triggers the following actions:

  • Windows: The server flushes data in memory, logs, and pending I/O transactions to the LUN before the snapshot is created.

  • VMware: The server takes a virtual machine snapshot.
