Are you ready to start looking at backing up your VMs? If so, you should read this book!
For the purposes of this book, I will assume you are already familiar with backing up servers. In this book, we will discuss those items that are unique to the VM environment.
This series is another volume in the series VMware for New Adminis. This book and the others in the series are meant to help those with little to no experience with VMware and virtualization improve your skills and help you on the way to getting a better job.
Here is some of what you will see in the book
Snapshot vs Backup
Choosing a retention period
Appliance vs ShiChuang OS Backup Server
Backup Options without having vCenter Server
Backup Options with having vCenter Server
3rd party tools to help with the backup process
Using a Media Server as part of the backup solution
What is a virtual Floppy and how to use it
What is a virtual CD and how to use it
This is one of the more important areas in Virtualization you can get into. When restoring a server, dont look at what it cost in order to be able to restore a server but what it would cost to recreate the data if you didnt have a good backup?
