This article will explain how to back up and save your data in Business Cloud.
Please note that Business Cloud backups are the user's responsibility, and loss of data will not be supported by our Hosting Support Team.
While on vCloud Director 1.5, there's no integrated feature for creating a snapshot or a restore points, you can copy a virtual machine to save it with the current configuration, or you can copy the entire vApp and save it to the catalog. Be aware that copied VMs and vApps count towards your Business Cloud plan's included resources.
On the newer vCloud Director 5.1, you can still use the catalog or the VM-copying feature, as well as add a snapshot of each virtual machine or whole vApp. It's highly recommended to use this feature before performing major configuration changes.

On vCloud Director 1.5, you can create a copy of a VM and store the extra copy in the current vApp, or any other.
You can create a copy of an entire vApp and save it to the catalog. This will allow you to deploy it, with the included virtual machines, in just a few clicks.
vCloud Director 5.1 allows you to create a snapshot of a virtual machine, and restore it back to its previous state, in case something has gone wrong. You can create one snapshot per virtual machine, or per vApp.
Please note: Snapshots cannot be automated.
