VMcom Backup Appliance is a pre-installed virtual machine designed to back up and recover VMware VMs.

Coming from an ISP background, the VMcom Backup Appliance is highly multitenant. It enables the central administrator to create isolated (tenant) environments within a single appliance. Each tenant can then be assigned a set of privileges for backup and recovery of particular vSphere objects and a storage quota.
