How to backup docker with something similar to Veeam Backup & Replication

Is there anything out there that will help me do individualized backups of docker and containers separately utilizing deduplication and other backup bells and whistles? It would be nice to be able to roll back a container easily instead of having it all clumped together which I am assuming is how it would be handled if you tried to use Veeam Backup and Replication or something else like that that deals with VM's instead of containers.

As Docker is new, I'm sure given time, if enough people start to use Docker, and it becomes fashionable, tools will start to appear.

But as a "Trail Blazer" you will just have to wait and be patient.

It took many years before Veeam Backup and Replication arrived on the VM backup scene!

You have a good point. I was just hoping someone in this community would know of a solution I haven't been able to find yet!

One reason I am looking at Veeam is that they are much more vendor neutral and have less to lose and possibly more to gain than someone like VMware.

It will not likely be VMware or Veeam, but a new Startup or Open Source!

I'm sure hoping for Open Source. Both VMware and Veeam charge a ridiculous amount of money to the point that it makes it difficult for a small business to have much left over.
