  • vStorage APIs for Data ProtectionThis API takes the benefits of Consolidated Backup and makes them significantly easier to deploy, while adding severalnew features that deliver efficient, scalable backup, and restore of virtual machines.Like Consolidated Backup, this API make it possible to offload backup processing from ESX servers, ensuring that you deliverthe best consolidation ratios without disrupting applications and users. The vStorage API for Data Protection enablesbackup tools to directly connect the ESX servers and the virtual machines running on them without any additionalsoftware installation. They add the ability to enable backup tools to do efficient incremental, differential, and full-imagebackup and restore of virtual machines.
  • The vStorage APIs for Data Protection support all of the features included in VMware Consolidated Backup and include several new functionalities as well.APIs for Data Protection supports all storage architectures for backup and restore, on both LAN and SAN.They include backup options for full, incremental, and differential virtual machine images.Additionally, the APIs provide for file-level backup and restore,And allow for backup application to be deployed on both Windows and Linux platforms.APIs for Data Protection also support snapshots and VSS Quiescing.

  • Reasons for Server virtualisation
    • few physical server
    • high CPU-utilization
    • many physical server
    • low CPU-utilization

  • Challenges in VMware environments
    % CPU Busy (8 LCPVs w/HT)
    • More data to backup
    • Less bandwidth
    • Short backup window
    New Paradigm: High overall server utilization, but low bandwidth for backup
    Old Paradigm: Low overall utilization and plenty of bandwidth for backup

  • Data Protection in virtual environments
    Questions to answer:
    How to do Backup and restore in a virtual machine (WM)?
    How to backup an individual VM?
    What level of backup do I need – what level of restore is necessary ?
    • Consistent Snapshot
    • Crash consistent VM
    • File consistent
    • Application consistent
    • User related data (VM level, file level, application level, record level (e.g. mailbox))
    How to handle Backup traffic and backup window?
    How to reduce storage overhead (de-duplication)?
    What are real benefits through integration of feature sets from other layers?

  • Mixed vStorage API and Agent solution
    Agents are a burden for the host but not in combination with vStorage APIs (here no backup workload on the agents)
    • Agents are necessary for consistency
    Backup must be a dedicated server (not running as a VM!)
    Using vStorage API’s for fast and efficient backup
    vStorage API’s not available for a Ethernet backup network
    VMware Agent is a license key for using API installed on the backup server
