Backup for vSphere!

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks! So with the latest release of vSphere, we now have something called VDP, or vSphere Data Protection!

VMware will now be including the ability to backup your vm’s right out of the box.  This is based on EMC’s Avamar and has deduplication abilities. This will probably work well in small business environments.

The downside? You can only backup to a VMFS data store and you can’t backup to regular shared storage. This makes it a pain to pull the data off of the VMFS store if you want to take it offsite.
