How PHD Virtual Backup Works

PHD Virtual Backup uses jobs to perform backups, restores, and backup storage maintenance (manual and automatic deletes). When a job is created, the PHD Virtual Backup Appliance (VBA) performs the requested action right away or based on a defined schedule.

When deployed to a vCenter Server or individual ESX or ESXi host, the PHD Virtual Backup Appliance performs the backup and restore processing for the VMs within that vCenter or Host environment.

The next few sections present a conceptual overview of how PHD Virtual Backup works and the components used.
