Design data protection of the management components in your environment for continuous operation of the ROBO SDDC if the data of a management application is compromised.

Backup protects the data of your organization against data loss, hardware failure, accidental deletion, or other fault for each region.

For consistent image-level backups, use backup software that is based on the vSphere Storage APIs for Data Protection (VADP). You can use any VADP-compatible backup solution. Adapt and apply the design decisions to the backup software you use.

Design Justification

Design Implication


Use a backup solution that is compatible with vSphere Storage APIs - Data Protection (VADP) and can perform image level backups of the management components.

You can back up and restore most of the management components at the virtual machine image level.
