  • Patent number: 8726275
    Abstract: A virtual machine belonging to a virtual computer environment is selectively cloned by retrieving information about applications available in a parent virtual machine to be cloned, and for each application, further retrieving information about a virtual disk associated with the application. Cloning is further performed by identifying a target environment on which the clone is to run, retrieving information about the target environment and calculating a clone of the virtual machine based at least in part, upon retrieved information. Calculating a clone further includes introspecting the virtual disks of the virtual machine. Cloning a virtual machine further comprises generating the clone to the target environment, based on the calculated clone.
