facing VM sprawl if you're experiencing an uncontrollable increase of
unused and unneeded objects in your virtual VMware environment. VM
sprawl occurs often in virtual infrastructures because they expand much
faster than physical, which can make management a challenge. The growing
number of virtualized workloads and applications generate “virtual
junk” causing VM sprawl issue. Eventually it can put you at risk of
running out of resources.
Getting virtual sprawl under control
will help you reallocate and better provision your existing storage, CPU
and memory resources between critical production workloads and
high-performance, virtualized applications. With proper resource
management, you can save money on extra hardware.
This white paper examines how you can avoid potential VM sprawl risks and automate proactive monitoring
by using Veeam ONE, a part of Veeam Availability Suite. Veeam ONE
will arm you with a list of VM sprawl indicators and explain how you can
pick up and configure a handy report kit to detect and eliminate VM
sprawl threats in your VMware environment.

Zerto’s innovative, hypervisor-based replication is a technology developed to provide a true enterprise class, yet fully virtual-aware disaster recovery solution, to protect virtualized, mission-critical applications. This document outlines the fundamental differences between Zerto’s hypervisor-based replication and other current and legacy technologies.
The current and legacy disaster recovery solutions compared in this document include:
• Zerto Hypervisor-based Replication
• Array-based Replication with and without SRM
• Host / Guest-based Replication
• Snapshot-based Replication
• VMware Site Recovery Manager with vSphere Replication
now the most common data replication technologies and methods essential
to mission-critical BC/DR initiatives have been tied to the physical
environment. Although they do work in the virtual environment, they
aren’t optimized for it. With the introduction of hypervisor-based
replication, Zerto elevates BC/DR up the infrastructure stack where it
belongs: in the virtualization layer.
Benefits of Hypervisor-Based Replication:
protects virtualized applications with the same robust and effective
recovery previously available only with complex and expensive array
based replication solutions. With Zerto you get:
Zerto Offsite Backup in the Cloud
What is Offsite Backup?
Backup is a new paradigm in data protection that combines
hypervisor-based replication with longer retention. This greatly
simplifies data protection for IT organizations. The ability to leverage
the data at the disaster recovery target site or in the cloud for VM
backup eliminates the impact on production workloads.
Why Cloud Backup?
Protect Applications, Not Data
How-to Guide: Application Protection and Recovery for VMware
organizations are considering a business continuity/disaster recovery
(BC/DR) solution, they need to look for a solution that not only
protects and recovers the data, but also protects and recovers the
application. Virtualized applications typically span multiple VMs and
are more complex in terms of dependencies and infrastructure. They
require recovery with write-order fidelity, something most replications
solutions do not supply

Why Rely on Backup Shipping as Your VMware DR Solution?
people think, if you want to protect data in your virtual VMware
environment, your easiest solution is to backup VMware using snapshots
or agents. However, solutions like this, such as Veeam, can slow down
your production environment, and they are difficult to scale.
many of us understand that backup is not disaster recovery. The right
approach to a BC/DR solution is hypervisor-based replication.
With hypervisor-based replication you receive:
