While enterprises employ virtual servers using VMware to help curb the cost and growth of physical servers, VMware backup solutions have become a vexing problem for administrators. Many VMware backup solutions don’t have the ability to backup VMware Virtual Machines through selective backups within a VM. As a result vSphere backup inevitably backs up too much data. That in turn means higher storage costs and potential impacts on network and application performance. Finally higher costs or performance issues result in less frequent backups, putting data in jeopardy.
Unitrends can help. As a leading provider of award-winning business recovery solutions, we deliver end-to-end protection and instant recovery of all virtual and physical assets. Unitrends VMware backup solutions resolve the challenges of VMware recovery and backup by protecting virtual environments - not only at the hypervisor level - but deep within individual VMs at the native application level and operating system level.
VMware backup solutions from Unitrends
As the provider of award-winning business recovery solutions that perform in any environment, Unitrends addresses the complexities of today’s modern data center with end-to-end protection of all virtual and physical assets.
Our VMware backup solutions use our Unified Data Protection engine which provides virtual and physical (native) protection for over 100 different versions of applications, operating systems, and hypervisors, as well as virtually all servers, SAN, NAS and storage systems.
Features and benefits of our VMware backup solutions
At the hypervisor level, Unitrends VMware backup solutions provide image-level protection as well as single-step instant vSphere data recovery, rollback recovery and granular recovery for virtual disks, files, folders, Exchange, and SharePoint items. Our solutions also offer encryption, deduplication across all backups, and integrated rotational archiving.
At the deep virtual level VMware backup software shines. Administrators have the power to protect applications and operating systems within one or more VMware vSphere virtual machines to provide greater control over the amount of data to be protected - rather than chosing to back up the entire virtual machine. Unitrends VMware backup solutions also provide:
- Fewer RPOs thanks to granular operating system and application level backup.
- Application-aware, adaptive deduplication to reduce footprint and backup/replication windows.
- Reduced snapshot overhead in virtual environments.
- Unitrends BridgeTM, a tool for recovery to dissimilar physical machines or other hypervisors.
