Should SMBs switch from VMware Consolidated Backup to vSphere?

Mkellett Megan Kellett Profile: Mkellett

Many data storage administrators currently use VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) to plug in third party media to their data backup environment. However, with the recent release of vSphere, some small- to medium-sized business (SMBs) are considering switching to vSphere from VCB. Is this a good move? How are backups similar/different in vSphere than in VCB? What are the pros and cons of taking this step? What are the new features in vSphere?

I talked to Greg Schulz, founder and senior analyst at The StorageIO Group about vSphere and VCB.

Listen to his responses in the podcast below.
