We use VMware ESXi for our web servers and simply do cross-backups for the entire VM. We also have local customers who are on bare metal that have substantial amounts of data. Currently, we use ShadowProtect. It works really nice when you want to recover to a previous point in time by simply just running the backup on VirtualBox, but when you want to go back the other way it is not so easy.
Can I use Veeam to backup to do snapshots like that out of vSphere, and have a backup that I can pick a point in time to run from, and then bring it back to a vSphere VM when I want to?
