How to Backup an ESXi Server with GhettoVCB

Published by SPK Blog Post
on September 12, 2011

VMWare is wonderful for getting full utilization of scarce resource.  However, if you’re on a limited budget, affording ESX clustered hosts for all needs is overkill.  Sometimes a free ESXi server is enough.

In the latter, we ran into challenges doing backups.  There’s a quick easy solution using GhettoVCB, a free utility that performs backups of ESXi hosts.   Download our deployment of this application: ESXi backup with GhettoVCB.

Let me know if you find this useful or if I can answer any questions on remote server management, technology services, or other engineering applications.
