Veritas NetBackup™ 6.5 for VMware 3.x: Best Practices

VMware virtual infrastructure software is used by enterprises large and small to increase the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of their IT operations. As innovative as virtual machine technology is, it also introduces new data protection issues.

This paper covers best practices for designing solutions for-and protecting-VMware virtual machines. It reviews several data protection solutions for VMware environments and answers questions about three of the most popular backup configurations. Questions answered include:

  • Is it best to protect the virtual machine (VM) by backing it up via a NetBackup or PureDisk client?
  • Is a NetBackup client inside the Service Console the answer?
  • What about VMware Consolidated Backup?
  • What are the benefits and disadvantages of these three backup configurations?
