Volume Snapshots

Registered by Angus Salkeld on 2012-11-14

Implement Volume Snapshots similar to what is available with EBS on EC2

Cinder snapshots are subtely different than EC2 ones, in the sense that they require the original volume to still be alive. Thus, backups seem like a better fit for this use case:

We need to implement backup creation when a volume resource is deleted, and the ability to create a volume from a backup.
