Quick VM Recovery

How it works

After system crash or any major disaster, you can instantly recover the business critical VMs or physical machines on any hypervisors like VMware ESXi host, Microsoft Hyper-V and KVM by using Quick VM Recovery feature.

Vembu reads the backup data from storage target and creates VMDK, VHD, VHDX and IMG disks virtually without using any physical storage on Vembu BDR backup server machine. So, by using the virtual VMDK, VM can be created on ESXi hosts and VHD/VHDX helps to create VM on Hyper-V. And also, by using IMG, VMs can be instantly created on KVM. So there are no limitations with the hypervisors. Based on your IT environment, you can recover the crashed VMs or physical machines instantly by using Quick VM Recovery feature.

  • For every VMs & physical machines, after completing each backup schedule, Vembu creates VHD, VHDX, VMDK and IMG disks virtually without using any additional storage
  • If BDR backup server is installed on physical machine, you can enable Hyper-V or KVM role in the backup server machine and you can use it to instantly recover the crashed VMs or physical machines
  • If BDR backup server is installed on virtual machine, you can use NFS to share vembu virtual drive and instantly recover the crashed VMs or physical machines instantly on VMware ESXi host
  • To maintain the integrity of the backup data, all the modifications after booting a VM will be kept as a separate virtual hard disk file and you can include this persistent data while rebuilding the source machine
