This course starts from the basics of backup, recovery, and replication and provides foundational knowledge for understanding backups and restores in a virtual environment. The vDP and vDPA products are covered in depth, with their features, functionals, and limitations reviewed. We will look at configuring and running backups, restores, backup verification jobs, and replication jobs. Next, the advanced file-level restore, application-level backups, and Direct-To-Host Emergency restores are discussed in-depth.
vSphere Data Protection (VDP) is a robust, simple to deploy, disk-based backup and recovery solution. VDP is fully integrated with the VMwarevCenter Server and enables centralized and efficient management of backup jobs while storing backups in deduplicated destination storage locations.
