Information about how your virtual environment impacts the # of Virtual Backup Appliances needed to protect your VMs
The number of PHD Virtual Backup Appliances you will need is determined by how your virtual machine environment is configured. Appliances must be able to access the storage where virtual machine disks are located in order to perform the backup. If you have some VMs on local storage and others on shared, you will need to deploy at least one appliance that can access the local storage on the individual host. For more information, refer to the Installation Guide.
