vSphere Data Protection 5.1 for DRP vs. Veeam Backup and Replication

Hi Guys,

One of our customers is using vSphere Data Protection 5.1 to backup all his VM's to one of the Datastores on the MSA2000 storage.

He's aiming to have a DR solution on a single ESXi host with LOCAL storage which is connected on a 1Gbps LAN.
Now, since I'm not experienced with vSphere Data Protection 5.1, I'm not sure that it's a good enough solution in oppose to Veeam - which I'm familiar with.

Can anyone please approve such a solution or present me with a comparison chart (with focus on DR).

Thanks

You cannot compare VMware VDP against Veeam Backup and Replication.

Veeam Backup and Replication does far more than VMware VDP.

VMware VDP is poor compared to Veeam Backup and Replication, which just does Backup to an appliance!

e.g. VMware VDP does not do Replication, unless you purchase it!

It comes as standard with  Veeam Backup and Replication

I've not seen a comparison chart, but if you look at the Veeam features, on their website, you will see what Veeam can do, which VDP cannot.

Have a look at this recent EE Question, for What Veeam Backup and Replication can do, which VMware VDP does not:-
