[Xen-users] Backup solution

Hi all,

We are planning to use XEN VPS in production environment. Before it we need to design a realiable backup policy for obvious reasons. I view two approaches:

a) Use a "snapshot" system for backup ALL VM file (image).
b) Use a traditional backup system (rsync, tar, cpio) for backup SELECTED data into VM.

I prefer A option but I've read in this list it is not possible unless you stop de VM during a few time (the time required for backup operation itself).

¿What backup solution do you use in your _production_ environment? The most important point is any downtime in VM is not viable.
