Hi folks,

I hope you are doing well. I have one question regarding data backup. At this time we are using Dell EMC VNXe1600 storage on which we are running VMware virtual machines.

We are planning to do a backup of user profiles and user data from client machines, there are 98 machines.  

Can we backup data directly on Dell EMC VNXe1600?
Second options is to buy another storage for data backup.

What are you recommending to me?

Thank you
