It gives me great pleasure to announce the first Fling that I have worked on.
Over the last couple months Chris Halstead, Stephane Asselin and I have been working on the new App Volumes Backup Fling.
This tool will help customers to backup their AppStacks and Writable Volumes VMDK files using their standard backup tools, normally backup tools do not see these files as they are not seen with in the vCenter inventory unless they are connected to a users virtual desktop.
Below you will find a number of links where you can find more information about the App Volumes Backup Fling.
You can also see the full announcement on VMware.com here
For instructions on how to use the Fling see the blog here
Please feel free to leave any feedback for Chris, Stephane and I and any features you would like to see added.
