Reworked copy of press release
Full article is here:
Unfortunately this still misses out on any technical details. Are they using VMware snapshots? If so then there is a snapshot limit of 32 snapshots per VM. The "hundreds of snapshots" seems to suggest something else or do they mean over 100s of VM?
How is this achieved, using the VMware disk development kit? Have they developed their own snapshot technology?
Is this a feature like the automatic rolling snapshots you can set up in VMware workstation?
Wouldn't a simple powershell script do the same thing?
How is file recovery going to help if you nuke the base disk (or if the disk has crashed) ?
A snapshot chain is not a backup. If you need file recovery then you are most likely too late...
Oh and for normal standard VMware snapshots you don't need an agent either, nor does the VM have to go offline.
It is still unclear to me what extra this product is giving us.
