We're evaluating VM Explorer to replace existing (and non-existing) software currently in use. As some backups would occur over internet from one office/datacenter to another, the question is if the transmitted data is encrypted? I see the option to encrypt virtual disks, but it's not clear to me when will this take place.
Yes, we are using a paid version of ESXi with vCenter. Our choice would be Enterprise version of VM Explorer using VMWare APIs, so I understand that the data is always encrypted.
Does the data flow change some way, if I select "Encrypt Backup"? Now I understand that the data is always encrypted during transfer, so selecting this option would just encrypt the backed up data, right?
Do the same principles apply to Hyper-V; we have also some Hyper-V hosts?
