Best Practices: Backing Up VMware with Veritas NetBackup

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 - mega-trend, VMware is making its way into data centers of every size. Recognizing this trend, NetBackup has engineered innovative, award-winning data protection solutions designed specifically for VMware environments. This paper discusses best practices for designing solutions for and protecting VMware virtual machines.

As beneficial as virtual machine (VM) technology is, it also introduces new data protection questions and challenges. For example: Is it best to protect the virtual machine 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 advantages and disadvantages of these three backup configurations are discussed in detail in this document.
