vSphere Data Protection - Introduction and Installation
Hello, and welcome to TrainSignal. You're watching vSphere Data Protection, Introduction and Installation. I'll start this lesson off with an introduction to vSphere Data Protection. This is especially important because wish vSphere 5. 1, they've introduced an all new product, and that product is vSphere Data Protection. Let's learn what it is and how it can help you. Now you may be thinking that you've heard of vSphere Data Protection, or VDP before. If it wasn't with vSphere 5. 1, then mostly likely you're thinking of another product that sounded similar or did something similar because with vSphere 5. 1, vSphere Data Protection, or VDP, is an all new product included with vSphere 5. 1, starting with Essentials Plus Edition and above. VPD is a VMware Virtual Infrastructure Backup and Recovery application. So it backs up your vSphere virtual machines, and it recovers your vSphere virtual machines or even individual files inside. With vSphere 5. 1, VDP is a complete replacement for a previous backup and recovery application that VMware provided called VMware Data Recovery, or VDR. So with vSphere 5. 1, VDR, or VMware Data Recovery, has been completely discontinued, and the new replacement going forward is VDP, or vSphere Data Protection.

vSphere Replication - Introduction and Installation
Hello, and welcome to TrainSignal. You're watching vSphere Replication, Introduction and Installation. In this lesson, we'll be talking about an all new feature of vSphere 5. 1, called vSphere Replication. I'll start off with a short introduction explaining to you what it is, and how it can help you before I walk you through the installation process. So with that, let's get started. New in VMware vSphere 5. 1 is the new vSphere Replication feature. vSphere Replication provides virtual machine-level replication, that means an individual virtual machine is selected to be replicated from one vSphere host or ESXi host to another ESXi host, that's what vSphere Replication does. It replicates individual virtual machines from host to host. This is not the same as VMware's Site Recovery Manager. Site Recovery Manager is a much more comprehensive disaster recovery planning and failover solution, which can take advantage of other replication solutions, such as vSphere Replication or replication found in your storage area network. Now vSphere Replication is included with all additions of VMware vSphere, except for the Essentials edition, and it's also not included with the free vSphere Hypervisor. In other words, vSphere Replication comes with vSphere Essentials Plus and above.
