The vCD backup is practically the same as a regular VM backup. The vCD backup job aggregates main settings for the backup task and defines when, what, how and where to back up.
You can perform the vCD backup job for single VMs and for VM containers, that, in terms of vCloud Director, are the following:
- Organization vDC
- vCloud Director instance
Just like a regular backup job, the vCD backup job can be scheduled or run manually.
