Backup Design for vCloud Tenant vApps
The document provides guidance for backup and data protection partners on how to build products to protect VMware vApps that reside in vCloud Director and how to restore them. This paper includes details about the various APIs required, covers basic backup and restore use cases, and the sample C# code. The paper assumes that the reader already understands how to backup virtual machines inside vSphere.
