Data Protector - Which intergration is best, ESX or Vcenter as client?

Jump to solution
Hi Experts

Which integration of VMware is best to perfor file level backups of Virtual Machines directly to the SAN and a performance perspective. Directly integrating with the ESX server or integrating in with the VCenter Server?

Thank you

The problem I have with VCB file level backups is the fact that you need the same amount of storage available on your Proxy server as the size of your VM. ie if you have a 1TB VM you need 1TB on your proxy to be able to mount it.

Secondly, if the client requires SAN backups of the files on each VM, this is still not possible. (When will VMWare be able to share Tape drives amoung VMs as in Integrity Virtual Machines to be able to do SAM backups directly from VM)....
