VDP
vSphere Data Protection Advanced - NEW!

Agent-less image-level backup and recovery

Fully integrated with vCenter Server and the
VMware vSphere
vSphere Web Client

Application-aware agent-based backups for MS
SQL Server and Exchange (Only VDP Advanced)
Data deduplicated

Ideal for small and midsize vSphere environments
Capabilities
The most efficient deduplication
 Variable-length – data is broken into sub-segments of variable length
 Global – performed across all the VMs protected by the same virtual appliance
 Client-side – within the VM for guest-level backup
Benefits
Lowest storage and bandwidth consumption
 Reduces storage consumption by up to 95%
 Reduces impact on virtual network by up to 99%
Highest deduplication rates
 On average 99% for file systems and 96% for databases
Capabilities
Changed Block Tracking (CBT) Support
CHANGED BLOCK TRACKING BACKUP
CBT Blocks
 Tracks changes made to VMs to backup only
changed blocks
 Uses CBT in conjunction with variable-length
STANDARD RESTORE
Full VM
CHANGED BLOCK TRACKING RESTORE
CBT Blocks
deduplication for backup
 Uses CBT also for recovery
Benefits
Shortest backup time
 Minimizes network traffic and backup windows by
sending only truly unique daily changes
Shortest recovery time
 Dramatically reduces recovery time by restoring
only the blocks changed since the last backup
Wizard-driven
backup jobs creation
Capabilities
Seamless platform integration
 Fully integrated with vCenter Server
 Managed through the vSphere Web Client
Streamlined management
 Deployed as a VM appliance
 Wizard-driven backup and recovery configuration
File-level recovery
Benefits
Virtualization and backup management through a
“single pane of glass”
 Little additional configuration post-deployment
 Simple creation of backup jobs and policies
 One-step recovery of full VMs or individual files

Builds on the success of VDP
 Proven EMC Avamar technology
 Easy, wizard-driven configuration
 Leverages vSphere APIs for Data Protection
(VADP)
 Changed Block Tracking (CBT) for backup and
restore
 Efficient variable-length de-duplication algorithm
 vSphere Web Client integration

Scale


Supports up to 400 VMs per VDPA appliance
4 VDPA appliance sizes
 Destination datastore options: 2TB, 4TB, 6TB, 8TB
 Capacity can be added (up to 8TB total)

Tier 1 Application Agents – Guest-level backup for
Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server
 Requires client agent installation
 Higher level of de-duplication than image-level
backup
 Backup and restore application or selected
database
 Application-consistent backup
Capabilities
Application-aware agent-based backups for MS SQL
and Exchange

VDP ADV
VMware vSphere
 A lightweight agent is installed inside the VM
 Variable-length deduplication is performed “clientside” by the agent within the VM
Benefits
Application consistency – ensured through guestVDP Advanced client software runs as
a guest within each Virtual Machine
level protection
Recovery of individual databases
 Microsoft Exchange – restore to Exchange Recovery
databases to recover mailboxes and messages
 Microsoft SQL – options for log recovery
