implify Microsoft Hyper-V backup with Unitrends

Enterprises seeking Microsoft Hyper-V backup solutions have had to make tough choices in the past. Because traditional Hyper-V backup solutions have tended to be expensive, enterprises have often chosen not to backup Hyper-V machines as often as they would like. Many Hyper-V backup technologies lack the ability to select data for backup within the virtual machine, resulting in too much data being backed up and too much storage being used, with low retention because of lower deduplication ratios.

That’s where Unitrends can help. Our enterprise-class Hyper-V backup and recovery solution helps to lower costs, reduce storage needs and simplify backup of virtual machines.

Our Hyper-V backup solution protects the following versions

  • Hyper-V Server 2008 R2
  • Hyper-V Server 2012
  • Hyper-V Server 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2012 R2

Deep Virtual Hyper-V backup offers more selective backups

One of the most valuable aspects of the Unitrends Hyper-V backup solution is the tools it provides for protecting applications and operating systems within one or more Hyper-V virtual machines. This granular control means that administrators can determine how much data to back up and store rather than needing to back up the entire virtual machine. Administrators can also set different Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs).

This deep virtual protection for Hyper-V backup offers features that include:

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