I've got some servers with plenty of data on them (in production) and I've been given the task of introducing VMware VM Encryption.
I'm lining up a KMS and uplift to Enterprise Plus for the requirements.
I've been reading this article. Virtual Disk Encryption which appears to give the option of either encrypting just the VM (VM Home) or the VM along with the virtual disks.
I suppose my question is - what's the difference? If I just encrypt the VM HOME - is my data encrypted?
"VM Home" would include the configuration files but exclude the virtual disks (which contain your guest OS, applications, and all data) - if your VM has multiple disks you would need at a minimum to encrypt "VM Home" and whichever virtual disk contains your data.
