vSphere Data Protection (VDP)

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks! So in the virtualization backup world you may have heard me mention VDP before. vSphere data protection is VMware’s answer to virtual machine backups and file level restores.

The confusion happens to be around VDP versions and I wanted to clear that up. There is regular VDP which sits at version 5.5 currently, and then there is VDP Advanced which sits at version 5.1.

The advanced version comes with many extra features such as:

  • SQL and Exchange agents
  • capacities greater than 2TB
  • application quiescing
  • client-side de-duplication
  • log truncation
  • full or incremental backups
  • use of multiple backup streams
