Point-toPoint vpn for Crashplan/backup device configuration?

We are looking to set up a point to point vpn with sonicwall on our end and watchguard on the clients end. We'll be using that to set up crashplan backup on virtual machines. Two questions.
1. Is it pretty straightforward to set up the point-to-point between sonicwall and watchguard?
2. Once that is established, would we need a backup device for each VM (say we have 3) or would backing them up to one device with designated partitions work ok?

Hi Ben,

1. Is it pretty straightforward to set up the point-to-point between sonicwall and watchguard?
Yes, just make sure the policies match. Both side should have Static IPs too.
2. Once that is established, would we need a backup device for each VM (say we have 3) or would backing them up to one device with designated partitions work ok?
You can backup to a centralized storage array. Best Practices would be to have 3 copies of the data on two disparate storage media, e.g. NAS, Cloud, etc.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
