Backup Verification for Data Integrity

The recoverability of the backed up VMware, Hyper-V VMs and physical machines are confirmed by running integrity tests. VMBackup offers three-tier backup verification check and it avoids data loss after recovery.

Boot check – Backed up VMs or physical machines will be instantly booted as a VM by reading the backup storage targets on Hyper-V or KVM..

Mount check – This process ensures that the backed up disks in each VMs and physical machines are mountable.

Integrity check – Vembu uses Windows check disk utility to check the integrity of each files which are backed up along with VMs and physical machines.
