vSphere tags are incredibly powerful objects, that can be used in many and amazing ways. One of the possible use cases for tags is Data Protection. Veeam supports vSphere tags in both vSphere 5.5 and 6.0, and with them you can create advanced policy-based data protection rules.
As I’m following closely the growth and evolution of this new technology for vSphere environments, I’ve found an article on the blogosphere and some additional comments on Twitter that made me re-think a bit about the real value of VVOLS. Is the real value of VVOLs the VM granularity, or it’s more the policy-based management?
