Virtualization Backup Made Easy and Affordable with VMware, EMC & Partner.
VMware and EMC have joined forces with partners to provide a best-in-class, integrated and scalable backup solution to accelerate your virtualization journey. VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced (VDP-A) combined with EMC Data Domain delivers high-performance data protection through patented variable-length deduplication and network-efficient, encrypted replication. Rapid, assured recovery and simple end-to-end management through VMware vSphere Web Client makes VDPA and Data Domain the ideal backup solution for vSphere.
VDP-A is capable of backing up an average of 200 virtual machines per virtual appliance, it can safely protect environments of several hundred virtual machines.It provides agentless, image-level backups to disk, as well as guest-level, application-consistent protection for MicrosoftSQL Server, Exchange, and SharePoint.
When VDP-A is used in conjunction with an EMC Data Domain system, backup data is stored on the Data Domain appliance where it stores and deduplicates a single storage pool of virtual machines. Adding backup storage is made easy at the vSphere web client with a drop-down menu selection for Data Domain, where backup data can scale to the storage capacity of the Data Domain system. Data Domain Boost software or DD Boost is used to manage data movement to the Data Domain system.
