Hello to you all!

We are implementing here at the University KVM virtualization for our 
servers and services and i was wondering if anyone try to automatically 
backup images.
I am actually using logical volumes for the VM guests. All virtual 
clients are installed in their LVM logical volume. We are already use 
IBM TSM for backup as we used to when we had physical machines, ie 
install client in OS and manage files and data backup.
I want to have an image backup additional to files backup, but i want to 
take the image online, without pause or suspend the VM guests.
Did anyone try to create image backups online? What about 
Can you please advise?
