With Ayehu eyeShare IT process automation you can take multiple VMware snapshots of any number of servers – automatically and at any time.
You can schedule the create VMware snapshot workflow to run at any required time and interval, or run it on demand using SMS, email or a self-service portal.

The ‘Create VMware snapshots’ workflow:
- Reads server list from excel file -to identify all virtual servers to be handled. The server list can be stored in an Excel file, database, or text file.
- Creates a snapshot – loops through the server list and creates a snapshot for each virtual server.
- Execute VMware snapshots on a daily basis or on-demand (via change request, email or SMS) at any time.
