IF I need to back up my virtual machines , I think I just need to implement a backup solution such as Veritas BackupExec, Brightstore ArcServ,Commvault,etc....
and this will be fine.
In this case I am not sure when I need the VCB feature of Vmware.
VMDK files are the VM disks
Can I just schedule a script that moves thes files to another location, and we call this OS backup ? maybe it's called Image level backup.
Regarding the Hosts(ESX servers) I don't know if Vertitas backup or other back up solution can back them up.
Regarding File level backup , Can I use just the backup soltion such as Veritas backupExec and will be fine?
