Microsoft Hyper-V Backup

Unitrends offers enterprise-class backup and recovery for Microsoft Hyper-V.

Virtual Hyper-V Backup

Unitrends protects Microsoft Hyper-V in virtual environments at the hypervisor level. Features of our hypervisor-level virtual protection of Hyper-V include:

  • Image-level protection.
  • Single-step, Instant Recovery for VMs.
  • Rollback Recovery: Incremental data restore over existing VMs.
  • Granular recovery: Virtual disks, Files, Folders, Exchange, and SharePoint items.
  • WAN-optimized replication of VMs offsite for fast failover.
  • WAN-optimized replication of backups to multiple locations for long-term retention or offsite copies.
  • Integrated rotational archiving.
  • Archiving to Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage and Rackspace Cloud Files.
  • Deduplication across all backups.
  • Encryption.
  • Detailed storage and compliance reporting.
  • Protection for VMs in CSV cluster configuration.
  • Protection of VMs running on SMB3.0 shares (Hyper-V Server 2012 and higher).

Deep Virtual Hyper-V Backup

In addition to hypervisor-based protection of Microsoft Hyper-V, Unitrends also allows protection of applications and operating systems within one or more Hyper-V virtual machines. This means that an administrator can set different RPO (Recovery Point Objective) and RTO (Recovery Time Objective) SLAs (Service Level Agreements) not only at the hypervisor level but granularly within the virtual machines themselves.  It also means that administrators can granularly control the amount of data that will be protected rather than having to select the entire virtual machine.

Features of our deep virtual protection of Hyper-V include:

  • Full system recovery of the Hyper-V host.
  • Granular file-level backup control.
  • Granular application-level backups with reduced snapshot overhead.
  • Unitrends BridgeTM:  Recovery to physical machines or other hypervisors.
  • Support for shared VHDX storage configurations.
