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

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. Considered by Gartner to be a "megatrend," VMware software is making its way into data centers of every size. Recognizing this trend, Veritas NetBackup™ has engineered innovative, award winning data protection solutions designed specifically for VMware environments. This paper covers best practices for designing solutions for--and protecting--VMware virtual machines.

As innovative as virtual machine technology is, it also introduces new data protection issues. 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? The relative advantages and disadvantages of these three backup configurations will be discussed in detail in this document.
