The need to protect workloads is the same whether it's onsite or in the cloud. You can ensure business continuity in your vCloud Air environment with vCloud Air Data Protection, an optional backup and recovery feature for Dedicated Cloud or Virtual Private Cloud instances.
Data Protection is an agent-less, self-service, policy-driven backup and recovery service with image-level backups to ensure all operating system, file system and application data residing within a virtual machine are captured as a snapshot image before committed to backup media. With this self-service backup feature, you can fully embrace the public cloud and deploy critical applications without worrying about data loss.
Note that Data Protection may not be available in all regions.
