VMware Data Recovery Evaluator's Guide
VMware Data Recovery enables quick, simple, and complete data protection for virtual machines. It is a disk-based backup and recovery solution. VMware Data Recovery is fully integrated with VMware vCenter™ Server to enable centralized and efficient management of backup jobs. It incorporates capabilities such as block based data deduplication and performs only incremental backups after the first full backup is completed to maximize storage efficiency. As a result of deduplication and incremental backups, VMware Data Recovery significantly reduces the space requirements in the destination disk where the backup data is stored.
The purpose of this guide is to support a self-guided, hands-on evaluation of VMware Data Recovery by IT professionals who are looking to deploy VMware Data Recovery in their VMware vSphere™ 4 environment to protect their virtual machines.
