Eric Siebert, vExpert, wrote a series of pdf documents that explain how backups work in the VMware Environment, including an intro to VMware, backup and recovery methodology, data recovery in virtual environments, as well as a brand new document about choosing the right backup solution.

Here is an insert from the latest guide, “Choosing the right backup solution for a VMware environment”.

Virtualization is an invisible layer that is inserted between physical server hardware and operating systems. When you implement virtualization in your data center, it affects almost everything in your data center that surrounds or connects to your virtual environment. This includes any type of hardware & software, such as storage, networking, monitoring and of course backup & recovery. With virtualization you’re in a whole new world especially when it comes to your critical backups. These backups are your safety net for anything that happens in your data center, and you need make sure that you choose a backup solution that is made for that new world as well.
