I tried SQL backup and restore options in vSphere Data Protection 6, becouse this is a free backup solution from vmware, up from Essentials licence. I writed a post how can you install this application. You can see below.

Now i’m going to show you how be able to create a backup job, and how be able to restore your DB.

In my eximple, i created a db in my MS SQL server, and created one table.
After that i create a backup job, and made a backup from my db.
I deleted my table from SQL DB, and i restored that.
