Backup VMs by host rather than cluster

Anyone knows if there's plans to allow VDP to backup VMs by host rather than by cluster?

It's important that new VMs get added to backup schedule automatically and that's why we are

using by cluster approach.

VDP size drives us to create more clusters to manage backups and this is kind of awkward situation.

Of course if VDP could be sized past 8 TB there would be no problems.

Is there any plans to allow bigger VDP appliances in the future or maybe include feature to

backup per host?

Thanks!

Hi There,

I don't believe there would be plans to increase size past 8TB or add host as a backup container option.

You could drop in a Feature request with VMware.

The recommendation is, if you need past 8TB is to deploy another VDP or use an EMC data domain.
