VMware vCenter 6.5 has one new feature which is the native file-based backup and restore. It supports the backup of the vCenter Server Appliance or Platform Services Controller (PSC). You can start the backup in the VMware vSphere Appliance Management Interface (VAMI).
We can select different type of protocol for backup location, eg FTP(s), HTTP(s) or SCP.
You can select which parts need need to be backup. It includes vCenter Server Appliance inventory and configuration. There is an option to also backup Historical data (Stats, Events, Alarms, and Tasks).
