vSphere Data Protection
vSphere Data Protection is a new backup and recovery solution designed for VMware vSphere. It provides advanced deduplication and is included with vSphere 5.1. vSphere Data Protection is powered by EMC Avamar, leveraging years of backup and data recovery expertise and production-proven quality and performance. vSphere Data Protection provides easy setup and management, deduplication, and high-performance virtual machine image-level backup and recovery.
It is ideally suited to protect smaller environments of up to 2 TB or 100 virtual machines. Larger environments can be protected by scaling out multiple vSphere Data Protection appliances or by deploying vSphere Data Protection Advanced.
