Sonntag, Dezember 26th, 2010

vmware_logo.jpg   When reclaim operations free space in files those files are not compacted to reflect the new free space. As a result the amount of free space on the deduplication store does not increase even when reclaim operations are reclaiming space – the space which is free is reserved and used for future backups

VMware Data Recovery 1.2 – use network based copy instead of SCSI Hot-Add

Donnerstag, November 25th, 2010

vmware_logo.jpg   VMware vSphere 4 Essentials Plus licence does not include SCSI Hot-Add. The SCSI Hot-Add feature in vSphere allows one virtual machine running a backup application to mount the disk of another so it can read the data from it and write it to destination media. Doing this removes the backup traffic from the network as the VM running the backup application uses the VDDK to access the disk and all I/O requests to it are sent directly down the VMkernel I/O path
