Use of synthetic full backups lets you combine advantages of tape-friendly incremental backup with those of reversed incremental. You can write small incremental changes to tape and at the same time have the latest VM image in the ready-to-restore state on the backup repository.
This is not clear to me. You can only get ready-to-restore images if you perform reverse incrementals. No ? If you only perform forward incrementals, and schedule a synthetic later..... you don't have a ready-to-restore image all the time but only when the syntheic is run what is its purpose ????
Can some body clarify please ?
