I have VMWare ESXi V5 computer with multiple VMs and like to back them up on an external USB hard drive.
I also puchased VMWare Essentials software that is supposed to have API to other software.
That said, can you recommend a few backup software - effective, easy-to-use and economical - and explain how these are setup?
In Windows environment, you just connect an external USB HD and either use Windows native backup program or buy Symantec Backup exec. However I have not done this for VMWare server.
