I have a vCenter that I need to backup in our office. All up its about 500GB of used space, 2 hosts with 5 VMs.
We are looking for a solution where we can backup offsite (to another site) overnight, where we will have a device that will store the backup. The connection between the sites is 8m/8m.
What I want to know is what is the best way to do this, obviously the first backup I would have to do onsite (as it would be a bit big for 8m link) and then move off.
Has anyone done this before? I was reading that you can get applicatons that backup at the block level, so I would like to use somthing like this.
Ideally I would love to hear from people who have done a similar thing before. (upgrading the bandwidth isn't an option)
