VMware vSphere Tags are a little known yet very powerful feature of VMware vSphere. Managed centrally though VMware vCenter Server, vSphere tags allow the grouping of various virtual infrastructure inventory items in many different ways as determined by an organization’s requirements.
This feature alone can make VMware vSphere easier to manage by providing a method to quickly get an overview of vSphere inventory items based on the criteria used to implement vSphere Tags. This is especially important in large scale enterprise environments.
vSphere tags can also be used with a number of Veeam® products to further simply the management of data within your VMware virtual environment. Veeam ONE™ Business View also has the ability to apply vSphere Tags to inventory items based on a number of criteria within its categorization engine.
