NetBackup for VMware with deduplication

For a VMware backup to a deduplication storage unit, select the Mapped full VM backup option for the Virtual machine backup parameter on the VMware snapshot method. This option provides the best deduplication rates. Use of the Full VM backup option results in a lower rate of deduplication.

More information is available about VMware configuration parameters.
