vSphere Data Protection (or VDP for short) is a long-standing product you may have heard about or even used to protect your data in your vSphere environment. It’s no wonder that many organizations worldwide relied on VDP as the core piece of technology handling data protection strategies with vSphere. After all, VDP was a fully featured backup solution that met the data protection requirements of many. A few of the key features included agentless, image-level virtual machine backups to disk, application-aware backups, and WAN encrypted replication. In today’s backup environments, when thinking of end-to-end solutions, the aforementioned features are the basic requirements.

VMware vSphere Data Protection End of Life

VMware vSphere Data Protection officially reached EOL and became unavailable. As per the VMware’s official announcement in April 2017, vSphere 6.5 was the last release to include vSphere Data Protection and the following releases no longer included the product. VMware still supports third-party backup solutions that integrate with the VMware vSphere Storage APIs – Data Protection Framework.

Therefore, if you currently rely on vSphere Data Protection, you need to start formulating migration strategies to move from VDP to another solid, modern backup solution that matches the capabilities and value of VDP and extends on that set of capabilities and business value. Let’s take a look at NAKIVO Backup & Replication which is a worthy successor and see how you can benefit from migrating to this product from vSphere Data Protection.
