Backing up Analytics

We are running a large Analytics instance, containing over 6 TB of performance data. I'm looking for an automated way to manage hot and cold backups of the DB. So far, the two suggestions I received from Zenoss were a VMware cold snapshot every week or Percona XtraBackup. (They said the latter is untested.) I'm not thrilled with these options, so I'd like to hear what other Analytics customers are doing.

Is a cold snapshot just a snapshot of the system while it is powered down? I am not sure I would ever use snapshots as a backup solution for a system that changes as much as a DB.

Ever consider setting up replication?
