Simplify VMware backup with Unitrends

VMware vSphere backup solutions have been something of a challenge for enterprises in the past. High VMware backup overhead costs have made it hard to back up data as frequently as necessary. VMware backup solutions often back up too much data because they lack a selective backup within the virtual machine. And traditional VMware backup operations tend to use too much storage with lower retention because of lower data deduplication ratios.

Enter Unitrends. As a leader in IT protection and data recovery, we offer VMware backup and protection for your virtual environments at both the hypervisor level and within individual virtual machines at the native application- and operating system-level.

Benefits of VMware backup with Unitrends

In addition to protecting VMware vSphere at the hypervisor level, Unitrends provides backup solutions for applications and operating systems within one or more VMware vSphere virtual machines. With Unitrends, you can set different Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) within individual virtual machines as well as at the hypervisor level.

Unitrends provides administrators with granular control of the amount of data and the size of the VMware backup, rather than having to select the entire virtual machine for every data backup. This deep virtual protection for VMware backup also includes Unitrends Bridge™ for recovery to physical machines and other hypervisors, and support for physical RDMs, iSCSI pass-through and independent persistent disks.

We also offer recovery assurance for physical Windows and deep virtual environments through our auditing technology and complete automation and orchestration at the application- and operating system-level for VMware with our ReliableDR recovery assurance and disaster recovery product.
