Backup Solution for Microsoft Hyper-V

Many small and medium businesses are using Microsoft Hyper-V to virtualize their data center. With the latest release of Windows 2019, Microsoft has improved its hypervisor capabilities and introduced a lot of new features. Hence, it is now on par with the other sophisticated hypervisors and it certainly helps to increase the user base for Hyper-V. The IT administrators using Hyper-V environment for their hypervisor purpose are in need of a comprehensive backup solution to avoid the OS/Disk corruption and other disasters. It should be noted that creating a backup policy for the Hyper-V VMs is not a simple process. Although Hyper-V in itself has a snapshot functionality, it is not an option for backup. Also, the backup software available for Hyper-V backup does not perform well due to the lack of comprehensive backup APIs from Microsoft.

Vembu has developed it’s own proprietary driver to backup the Hyper-V VMs in an efficient manner especially with up to 5X improvement in performance over the other backup softwares.

  • Agentless Hyper-V Backup
  • Supports Windows Server 2019
  • Supports Cluster Shared Volumes and SMB Share
  • Application-aware image processing and Transaction log truncations
