HX Data Platform ReadyClones Overview
HX Data Platform ReadyClones is a pioneer storage technology that enables you to rapidly create and customize multiple cloned VMs from a host VM. Is an expansion feature that is used for creating multiple copies of VMs that can then be used as standalone VMs.
A ReadyClone, similar to a standard clone, is a copy of an existing VM. The existing VM is called the host VM. When the cloning operation is complete, the ReadyClone is a separate guest VM.
Changes made to a ReadyClone do not affect the host VM. A ReadyClone's MAC address and UUID are different from those of the host VM.
Installing a guest operating system and applications can be time consuming. With ReadyClone, you can make many copies of a VM from a single installation and configuration process.
Clones are useful when you deploy many identical VMs to a group.
