Minimum VMWARE vSphere (ESXi 4.0) license for Backup Exec 2012
I plan to backup VMware host by using Backup Exec 2012 with Agent for VMware and Hyper-V.
Now I use free edition of VMWARE ESXi 4.0 (result with backup fail when try to create snapshot)
after I find information they told Backup Exec 2012 cannot backup free version of ESXi 4.0
Please help me about:
1. Minimum version of VMWARE ESXi 4.0 to buy upgrade for able to use with Backup Exec 2012 (Essential, Essential Plus or Standard?)
2. When Backup Exec 2012 try to create snapshot of guest VM, how much host disk space use to store snapshot
(in this case, I will backup Guest VM with 500GB harddisk but host has only 100GB of disk space, can BE create snapshot and backup this guest?)
