Manfred --

Time Stream is the ability to create unlimited backups in a cluster from which users can restore state with a single click, kind of like the Time Machine functionality in Macs. Time Stream is implemented using VMCaliber snapshots, i.e., snapshots are the underlying mechanism to get Time Stream functionality.

Time Stream is exposed via the integrated data protection UI on Prism, allowing you to schedule snapshots and set retention policies. Hope this helps.
