Unitrends makes it simple to backup VMware servers

It should be easy and affordable to backup VMware servers as by design VMware and other virtual machines simplify and reduce the cost of managing rapidly growing volumes of servers. But all too often VMware backup is costly but unduly complex. Many VMware backup solutions cannot provide selective backup within the virtual machine meaning too much data gets backed up. That results in too much storage, causing retention rates to drop as deduplication ratios decline. Too much data can lead to longer backup windows and disruption to production systems. The net – administrators can’t backup VMware as frequently as desired, leaving data stored on virtual servers poorly protected.

Unitrends offers a solution. Our backup technology allows you to backup VMware with deep virtual protection at the hypervisor level as well as the application level and operating system level. This combination reduces the size of backups, improves deduplication, minimizes costs and ultimately improves the effectiveness of VMware disaster recovery.

Backup VMware with Unitrends

Unitrends provides award-winning business recovery solutions that work in any IT environment. Our collection of virtual, physical and cloud solutions provides end-to-end protection and instant recovery of virtual and physical assets, with the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry. Unitrends’ solutions provide protection for more than 100 different versions of operating systems, hypervisors, and applications, as well as almost all servers, NAS, SAN and storage systems.

Unitrends VMware backup software makes it simple and less costly to backup VMware. With granular file-level and application-level backup control, administrators can be selective about what data to protect during VM backup rather than backup the entire virtual machine.
