Use ZFS for the backup of mylvmsnapshots

Registered by Lenz Grimmer on 2008-09-30

ZFS does provide "cheap" snapshotting functionality, meaning that in comparison to Linux LVM there is very little overhead involved in keeping a snapshot around. This could be utilized to actually treat the snapshot itself as the backup. In addition to that, "zfs send/receive" could be utilized to transfer the snapshot copies to a remote server for backup purposes.
