In this post I’d like to show you how to deploy VMware’s newly released vSphere Data Protection 6.0 (VDP). As you might be aware of there are no longer two version for VDP available. Rather starting with the latest release they combined the features of both. This gives customers with a license for “VMware vSphere Essential Kit Plus” the opportunity to take benefit of all the features of VMware vSphere for Data Protection Advanced. This also means that you can attach the appliance to an EMC Data Domain system. Very valuable!
As I was installing VDP 6.0 I recorded it. If you want to give VDP a try, please feel free to watch the video to get you kickstarted:
If you are eager to learn more about VDP you can read and download the manual from VMware. For your convenience, here’s the link: VMware vSphere Data Protection 6.0 Administration Guide.
