Here is a summary of target use cases, solution architecture, solution components, and support information.

Use cases
  • Backups and restores using vStorage APIs for Data Protection (VADP)
  • Changed block tracking (CBT)
  • Full, incremental, and synthetic full backups
  • Restores of full virtual machines, and guest files
  • Hot-add is the ONLY transport mode supported


Solution Architecture
The solution consists of one or more Clumio Cloud Connectors “Connector VM” deployed in a customer’s VMC SDDC. Clumio’s architecture takes advantage of Amazon S3 endpoints to maximize performance and negate the egress costs associated with moving backup data from a customer’s VMC Connected VPC to the Clumio cloud service.

Figure 1: Preferred solution utilizing AWS VPC Endpoints for connectivity to S3 when VMC and the Clumio service are deployed in the same AWS region.

Figure 2: Solution utilizing internet gateway for connectivity to S3 when VMC and the Clumio service are deployed in different AWS regions.
