    PHD Virtual Backup installs and configures in 10 minutes or less. There's no training or professional services required with our virtual backup solutions, and with menus integrated into your existing hypervisor client and an intuitive, wizard-driven interface, you won't even need to read the documentation.

  4. Quicker, easier and more effective scaling.

    PHD Virtual's unique architecture scales faster and more effectively. Deploying a new Virtual Backup Appliance (VBA) to handle additional workload or setting up a new backup job takes only minutes.

  5. Faster performance.

    PHD Virtual Backup performs 3 to 5 times faster on backups when compared to competitors. We maximize speed by leveraging the best technologies available, including hot-add from VMware, change block tracking, and deduplication.

  6. Faster data recovery.

    Instant VM Recovery gets you back up and running in less than 3 minutes while File Recovery options provide access to your backed up files, folders, and application objects within seconds.

  7. Smallest footprint.

    PHD Virtual Backup has one simple component: the Virtual Backup Appliance (VBA). There are no management servers, proxy servers, or data servers required by many other solutions.

  8. No physical machines. No added license costs.

    Unlike other virtual recovery solutions that require one or more physical machines along with their extra costs and labor, PHD Virtual Backup is exclusively virtual. So there are no extra costs for additional hardware, operating systems, product licenses, or maintenance associated with licenses.

  9. Lower demand on resources.

    PHD Virtual's exclusive virtual architecture places lower demands on your infrastructure, off-loading processing from production VMs, using direct-attached snapshots, and conducting source-side deduplication.

  10. Lowest storage usage.

    PHD Virtual Backup's built-in, multi-stage deduplication technology uses less storage than competitors who only utilize deduplication across a single backup job.

  11. More secure.

    PHD Virtual Backup passes industry-standard data center security tests. It can be configured with trusted security certificates and data encryption is supported for data in-motion and at-rest.

  12. Far more affordable.

    PHD Virtual costs up to 40% less than competitors while delivering far more value!
