DP Series Appliance uses Avamar backup and recovery software, which delivers secure data protection for cloud, remote office, and data centers. Avamar has tight integration into VMware interfaces, making it a great solution for protecting any workloads running in a VMware environment.
To set up VMware image-based backups and to protect VMware workloads, VMware Hypervisor Manager is registered with DP Series Appliance. Registration is one-time process, and associated services are added dynamically to the backup policy. The Proxy is deployed for offloading snapshot workloads and to perform file-level recovery from an image-level backup. The policy is set, and a schedule and a retention period are assigned.
