Virtual Backup Solution
Posted on 2011-02-24
I currently have a 3 host cluster running ESXi 4.1. I have 3 networks running in this environment consisting of a few corporate servers, a development environment and a DMZ environment. There are both Linux and Windows VMs in the setup.
I am looking for a good simple backup solution for the VMs in my environment. I have looked at Acronis, Bacula & copying the vmdk files from the SAN directly. Non of these fill my full need as Acronis is Windows only, Backula is not designed to handle the VM backups the way I need it too and copying the VMDK files requires the VM to be powered off.
Looking for suggestions that can handle both Windows & Linux VM backups.
