Fast and Efficient Image Based Backups

  • Linux virtual backup appliance (VBA) performs backup processing that has no impact on the management network when accessing production data.
  • Data processed at the block level and deduplicated in-line to ensure minimal data is transferred and stored on the backup target.
  • Only unique data is written. There is no need to perform periodic full backups ensuring a consistent, short backup window forever.
  • Deduplication performed across all VMs and jobs per backup target, making backup management easy, and reducing the costs associated with storage upgrades.

Significantly Reduced RTOs

  • Recover entire VMs in a single step without having to manually spin up VMs and install agents.
  • If the backed up VM is still present, use the unique Rollback Recovery mode to restore only changed data over top of an existing VM, decreasing recovery time even further.
  • Quickly and easily recover individual files

Web-Based Dashboards and Reports

  • Eliminate backup babysitting with easy to read dashboards and advanced protection reports
  • Stay in touch with the status of your backups via any Chrome or Firefox web browser that can connect to your environment.
  • Know exactly what is protected and what is at risk in just a glance

Automated Long-Term Retention

  • Retain data over long periods of time without having to save every backup.
  • Automated GFS (Grandfather-Father-Son) retention significantly reduces storage usage.
  • Strengthen your archiving strategy by keeping long-term retention on disk without having to perform periodic full backups, or having to manually delete backups.

Data Verification and Auto-Correction

  • Each block of data sent to the backup target can be verified to ensure validity.
  • Data corruption can be detected and auto-corrected in many instances.
  • Ensure reliable restores consistently.

Multi-Hypervisor Support

  • The only agentless data protection product for Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware vSphere and Citrix XenServer.
  • As needs vary for certain workloads, you get the freedom to use multiple hypervisors.
  • PHD Virtual has got you covered.
