Want to backup your data center? Try VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB)!

Backup is one of the most frustrating, boring (thus allowing the sysadmins to ignore the importance of it) and very cumbersome issue. How many times you have had to encounter the situation: Stuff crashes in test, development and even production and you are looking at the sysadmin looking back at you like "what dýa want from me!?!"

Well I have had enough experiences in the past of all kinds of scenario where some production environments were not even backed up! Well it might sound like "Geez dude, where were you employed, Elbonia?" No sir, this happens all over the place.

Taneja ( a respected storage man) too has somethings to say about VCB...

"Time-consuming and labor-intensive backup and recovery processes have frustrated customers for years," says Arun Taneja, founder and consulting analyst at the Taneja Group. "VMware Consolidated Backup eliminates the backup load from production servers while enabling faster recovery of entire virtual machines."
