Within ESX, there are many possible methods to perform a backup to a storage system. It is important to use a deterministic strategy to perform a backup and recovery analysis in light of the desired backup and recovery points. This should be done according to customer approved SLAs (Service Level Agreements) or goals in order to come up with a viable solution to minimize downtime and address these goals.
