VMware VDR licensing

Here I wrote about availability of VMware VDR in almost all the editions of vSphere - newly in Standard edition as well. VDR provides agent-less backups of  virtual machines and in-line block based destination deduplication.

This license change applies for all installations or upgrades to the latest release 4.1 update 1 of ESXi hypervisor. The  screenshot below shows the licensed features of one of my ESXi servers with  ESXi 4.1 update 1, build 348481, standard edition.
