VMware Announces VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced

VMware vSphere Data Protection (VDP) is a backup and recovery solution that was introduced with vSphere 5.1. The software license is included for free in  vSphere 5.1 Essentials  Plus and higher editions.

VDP leverages mature, proven technology from EMC Avamar to provide reliable, space-efficient, disk-based data protection for VMware virtual machines (VMs). VDP is fully integrated with VMware vCenter Server and the vSphere Web Client. One of the real beauties of VDP is its ease of deployment and management which explains why thousands of VMware customers have already downloaded VDP since it was introduced just a few short months ago. Today, VMware announced VDP Advanced which further extends the capabilities of VDP. Here are the highlights of the new functionality found in VDP Advanced:

  • Higher scalability (up to 8TB of de-duplicated backup data)
  • Application-aware backup and recovery of Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Exchange
  • Dynamically increase capacity
  • Migration from VDP to VDP Advanced

As many of you already know, VDP (included with vSphere Essentials Plus and higher) scales up to 2TB of de-duplicated backup data. VDP Advanced extends that capability to 8TB of de-duplicated backup data. VDP Advanced also supports protecting a maximum of 400 VMs per applianced (VDP supports up to 100 VMs).

The cost of VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced is $ 1095,- per CPU.
