vmware VDP storage

VDP comes into different support option .5TB ,2TB, etc... I guess the VDP advanced comes with up to 8TB.

what I do not understand, is whether they are talking about how much storage can be mapped to the VDP appliance ?

seeing that the storage is in the SAN, when they say VDP appliance of 2TB, I understand that if we assign the Appliance to datastore of 60TB, the appliance can write only 2TB at the maximum including the appliance files installations.

I am not sure if I am understanding it right.

Thanks

The VDP appliance is where the BACKUP Repository is.

So you will need to estimate, what size repository you require.

So do you want a .5TB, 2TB or 8TB backup location?

Your assumptions are correct.

I mean:
When you create a VM in Vmware workstation of Fusion, the VM uses the storage on the hard drive of the computer.

If you install VDP appliance which is like a VM, it will use the space in the SAN storage assigned to the ESX host.
correct?

Yes, it will if you import the 2TB version it will consume 2TB on your SAN.
