Quote of the Month
“We have established a multi-tier data protection strategy that works well for us. VMware VMs running on top of VSAN handle the first level of failures, while replica VMs that are stored on the TrueNAS is the second tier of protection in case something would happen to VSAN. In addition, we perform full VM backup with NAKIVO Backup & Replication running on top of the TrueNAS appliances and FreeNAS servers. Lastly, we use backup copy jobs to send backups offsite.” – Doug C., Senior Network Engineer, NAKIVO
