Storware vProtect is an enterprise backup solution for virtual environments.
It facilitates the implementation of virtual machine backup running on open platforms such as Citrix XenServer, Xen (based on a regular Linux distribution), RHEV, oVirt, KVM, KVM for IBMz and Oracle VM. By using hot-clone feature one is now able to quickly push VM’s backup to vProtect Server. Dynamic reconfigurations are available directly from web interface.
It’s a solution that extends capabilities of IBM Spectrum Protect Family (IBM Tivoli Storage Manager) by providing a comprehensive, scalable protection for Citrix XenServer environments.
Using snapshot based backup strategy, one can quickly backup not only data but also configuration of the running virtual machines. Storware vProtect also provides easy to use CLI and web UI management interfaces.
Backups can be stored in IBM Spectrum Protect, OpenStack Swift object storage as well as local storage. It is now easy to use existing OpenStack Swift instance to store and keep backups of VMs according to specific retention policy.
- A dedicated extension for IBM Spectrum Protect Family (TSM)
- Cost effective licensing model for existing TSM environments (based on hypervisor memory size)
- Ability to backup not only data, but also whole VM on Citrix environments (native XVA format)
- Protection for Open Source Xen and KVM virtual environments
- Multiple vProtect servers are capable of transferring large amount of data from hypervisors locally, while having only to send small amount of deduplicated data to the TSM Server:
- Especially important for enterprise, geographically dispersed environments
- Easy-to-implement solution with less computing resources needed than competing systems
- Restore to vProtect Proxy’s local storage or to any remote location accessible from Proxy
