Ensuring a complete VMware data protection strategy is possible when you can satisfy the four major criteria: support for a broad range of RPOs and RTOs; simplicity of installation, operation and management; high performance, scalability and integrity; and granular backup and recovery for both virtual and physical servers. But, no single backup and recovery solution can satisfy all four criteria in an optimal, cost-effective way. That’s why we recommend a strategy offering near-continuous data protection for mission-critical applications, and automated nightly backup and replication for less-critical data. Read this report to discover how you can implement a cost-effective data protection strategy in your own VMware environment.
