You can use a backup solution, such as vSphere Data Protection, to protect the data of your SDDC management components on the management and edge clusters, and of the tenant workloads that run on the compute clusters.

Data protection solutions provide the following functions in the SDDC:

Back up and restore virtual machines.

Organization of virtual machines into groups by VMware product.

Store data according to company retention policies.

Inform administrators about backup and restore activities through reports.

vSphere Data Protection instances in the two regions provide data protection for the products that implement the management capabilities of the SDDC. vSphere Data Protection stores backups of the management product virtual appliances on a shared storage allocation according to a defined schedule.
