Configuring a VMware ESX/ESXi/vSphere backup

ESX/ESXi/vSphere is a very popular virtualization platform. Developed by VMware, it serves the 67.6% of server virtualization market and the 58.4% of virtual desktop one, according to the latest V-index report. Such a widespread OS can’t be ignored and Nanosystems empowered Uranium Backup (from version 8.6.0) with ESXi/vSphere 3.5-4.x-5.x backup and restore features. Let’s see a brief tutorial about how to backup a VMware ESX/ESXi/vSphere virtual machine.

It’s even possible to keep multiple copies that will be overwritten starting from the oldest. You only need to specify, in the related field, the number of copies you want to store:
