VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced

Choosing Your vSphere Data Protection 5 Edition

VMware vSphere Data Protection is available in two editions to help you protect your virtual machines depending on the size of your vSphere environment and with the level of granularity that your applications require.

VMware vSphere Data Protection 5 Advanced

vSphere Data Protection Advanced is a backup and recovery solution powered by EMC Avamar designed for midsize vSphere environments. It extends the capabilities of vSphere Data Protection – available with all vSphere editions – with greater scalability and integration with business-critical applications. vSphere Data Protection Advanced provides fast agent-less image-level backups, as well as guest-level application-consistent protection of Microsoft® SQL Server™ and Microsoft® Exchange Server™.

vSphere Data Protection, a feature available with all vSphere editions, is ideally suited to protect small vSphere environments. Based on EMC Avamar technology, vSphere Data Protection provides the most efficient agent-less image-level backup and recovery for virtual machines.

Midsize companies constrained in time and resources can’t afford to deal with complicated and expensive licensing models. However, these organizations should not have to settle for less capable solutions simply because they can’t invest on enterprise-level products. With enterprise-class deduplication and streamlined backup and recovery management, vSphere Data Protection Advanced is the most cost-effective backup solution.
Licensing unit – vSphere Data Protection Advanced is licensed per CPU.
What this means to customers
  • Protect as many VMs as needed on properly licensed vSphere hosts.*
  • Deploy virtual appliances as needed at no additional charge (up to 10 per vCenter Server instance).
  • No charge for the agents deployed throughout the environment – they are included with the solution.
  • No need to perform complicated calculations to forecast backup storage capacity as in “per TB” licensing models.
Licensing vSphere Data Protection Advanced is as simple as matching the number of vSphere licenses in the environment.
*Actual limit in the number of VMs that can be protected is dictated by the technical scalability limitations of the solution.


vSphere Data Protection Advanced can also be purchased as part of the Enterprise and Enterprise Plus editions of the vSphere with Operations Management Accelerations Kits. Learn more about Acceleration Kits.


VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced requires an adequate number of vSphere licenses (version 4.1 or higher and Essentials Plus or higher edition) and one instance of vCenter Server 5.1 or higher.
