[Discuss] Revisiting VMWare ESX backup options

No, that's the opposite of what RP said.  He said encryption is an unnecessary complexity and the only thing that matters is physical security.  Which is of course, unrealistic for many reasons, but it's not worth going into any deeper after mentioning physically insecure media transport.  There's no such thing as physical security for offline offsite backup archives.
