VMware vSphere Data Protection 5.5.6 or Veeam Backup and Replication?
Posted on 2014-08-09
My company currently only has about 50 VM's total, 35 at Site A and 15 at Site B. They are currently using Veeam Backup and Recovery for their Backup Solution for VM's. Veeam is working perfectly fine in the environment with no complaints.
I recently deployed VMware vSphere Data Protection 5.5.6 and have been testing it out in the environment. The new version seems pretty stable and performs well.
What does everyone think about these 2 products? Pro's, Con's, which one do you prefer, etc...?
Our main concern is basically wanting to be able to do Backups of VM's, Recover VM's if needed, Recover files from VM's if needed, and then being able to Replicate from one site to another.
Your thoughts and comments are greatly appreciated.
