Data Object Description

VirtualDevice.RemoteDeviceBackingInfo is a data object type for information about a remote device backing used by a device in a virtual machine. The primary difference between a remote device backing and a local device backing is that the VirtualCenter server cannot provide a list of remote host devices available for this virtual device backing.
