Many small and medium businesses are now familiar with image-based backup solutions that have been used to protect physical machines, and they wonder how or whether this technology can be applied to their growing population of virtual machines. The benefits of image-based backups for bare-metal restoration and fast, complete recovery are well known. As such SMB customers naturally want to adapt these familiar backup solutions to virtual servers. What are the strengths to this approach and what challenges are likely to be encountered?
Virtualization platforms are different from physical platforms. The virtualization benefits extend to management and support for tightly integrated backup and recovery solutions. Solutions designed exclusively for virtual infrastructure backup provide a host of key benefits and should be leveraged whenever possible.

Being able to put best of breed solutions together as part of a cohesive backup and recovery strategy is going to be critical to any business.
