Crash-Consistent Backup

A crash-consistent backup is a disk image that stores the state of a disk exactly as it was at a single point in time.

The data in a crash-consistent backup is consistent with the data that would be available if the system crashed at that exact point and had to recover on boot.

Volumes support automatic formatting and mounting, resizing, and snapshots. They have burst support for improved IOPS and bandwidth rates and are encrypted with LUKS.
