We are using Vmware ESXi Essentials Plus. We have 2 VM hosts with ESXi 5.0 and Vcenter server 5.0. Right now we are using Symantec backup exec 2010 R3 to take backup from my virtual machines. But we don't have license from Symantec for VM infrastructure. I have o accomplish two things:

  1. Backup Virtual machines/hosts for DR purpose..
  2. We would like to setup/configure third host at the remote location and replicate it with our existing VM hosts..

I am looking at Symantec backup exec 2012, AppAssure, Veeam backup and replicaton for this project. I would like to know what others are doing for VM Backup/replication and share their experience.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions...

Regards, Hemal

You could look into using VMware Data Recovery, which should be available to you as part of Essentials Plus.
