VMware has been at the forefront of the shift towards the modern data center, enabling organizations to take advantage of the unprecedented agility provided by the software-defined data center (SDDC) and the delivery of all infrastructure-as-a service (IaaS). This data center evolution has resulted in an increasingly converged and software-driven environment that empowers IT and organizational transformation.
However, protecting VMware workloads (applications and their data) in this new model is more complex, creating challenges that are not easily met by data protection solutions built for legacy SAN-based architectures:
Many of today’s data protection solutions are limited by their inability to provide holistic data protection, which forces trade-offs between key requirements. Bottom line, common data protection architectures such as the traditional hardware and software model and initial approaches to converged hardware and software don’t work well for larger VMware environments and are not designed to support the SDDC.
