The 3-2-1 Backup Rule – Why Your Data Will Always Survive

Remember Blade Runner 2049, when people lost all their valuable data in The Blackout? Thanks to the 3-2-1 backup rule developed by Veeam, a disaster like that will never come true. I decided to write an article discussing this strategy in detail to make sure that guys new to IT will keep their data safe.

ESXi is free… but, why do you buy ESXi anyway?

ESXi is often told to be a free hypervisor. I’ve mentioned in my previous post that there are actually two free ESXi versions: Evaluation and Free. The thing is, both have several limitations that make them unfit for production use. The former has a 60-day time limit, but it provides all the ESXi features. The latter, in its turn, has no time limits, but it lacks many cool hypervisor features. With all that being said, it becomes clear why you just buy from VMware at some point even though you are potentially good to go with any of those free licenses.
