VMWare backup and replication for ESXi vSphere virtual machines to datastore or differential over IP. No agents, self capable, runs in the hypervisor host, ESXi 5.1, ESXi 5.5 & ESXi 6.0 compatible, hot backups.

Free VMWare backup solution for the ESXi hypervisor. Linux style command line tool. Crontab with configurable disk space autoprovision, set the room you want to reserve for your backups and rotate them.

Full backups may be done with vmkfstools or by means of Rsync and its Delta algorithm (read: http://33hops.com/blog_xsibackup-rsync-considerations.html), to a local datastore or over TCP/IP tunneled through SSH, so any transfer over IP is secure.

    What if there are several disks on a different datastores ? seems like the script finds them all but cloning to the backup location only the last one found as the others are overwritten by it. if that's the case, then this is bad. correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks
