Running data-heavy applications such as SQL, NoSQL and BigData is a challenging task. What is even more challenging is the lifecycle management of these applications. One of the important life-cycle operations is taking consistent snapshots of data-heavy applications for data protection and backing up these application snapshots up to a different media, eg. Cloud.

We will take a look at why a Volume Consistency Group is a must-have for retaining data consistency.
