I think you could try to test vinchin free edition which can support Vmware environment. And besides it also has some features that may cover your demands like CBT,data compression,incremental backup and differential backup and so on.

  • Vinchin backup software support agentless backup? and what kind of type does your backup solution support as a repository? Jul 22, 2019 at 10:05
  • Thanks for your asking. vinchin support agentless backup.only need to install a small plug-in on your hypervisor layer. then you could backup unlimited VMs.
