Agent-less, Stable, Cost-effective
Backup for KVM environments
Storware offers a modern data protection solution that provides backup and recovery of VMs running in KVM and KVM-based environments. With vProtect you can significantly improve the performance of your data center, automate recovery tests, and thus easily save resources, time, and money. Highlights:
- support for QEMU 2.1+ (QCOW2-based VMs need libvirt with blockcommit feature)
- full backup of QCOW2 or LVM-based (LVM thin pool support) VMs
- incremental backup for QCOW2/RAW file-based storage
- Ceph support + mixed volume types support
- intuitive HTML5 Web Interface
- open API for 3rd party software integration
- snapshot management
Snapshots greatly simplify and improve the efficiency of backup and recovery operations because they allow you to capture the contents of a volume at a specific point in time.
File-level restore (FLR) allows you to access individual files via Web UI using mounted backups. This allows you to read copies of files or restore them from restore points to any other available location.
HTML5 Web UI
Easy to use and intuitive management (HTML5 web UI and CLI) – With an intuitive and modern UI, you can quickly set up protection and store backups in several different backup providers, automate recovery tests and reduce daily management time.
Automated disaster recovery – test backup automatically to ensure recoverability.
Enterprise-Ready Backup and Recovery Solution
Storware vProtect features best in class backup tools for open virtual machines, containers and cloud. It is able to backup virtual machines (VMs) running on variety of platforms: Citrix Hypervisor, Red Hat Virtualization, RHV, oVirt, KVM, Proxmox, Nutanix AHV, Kubernetes as well as Openshift, OpenStack and AWS EC2. It provides high-speed recovery, snapshot based backup strategy, backup multiple virtualization platforms to multiple backup providers.
KVM – As part of the Linux kernel, it is open-source virtualization technology. Turns the Linux kernel into a hypervisor. It provides excellent application performance and a solid foundation for cloud-native and container-native workloads. But like other hypervisors, KVM virtual machines are also prone to multiple failures, hence the need for backups.
What our customers say
Storware vProtect solutions for backup and restoring virtual machines fulfilled our requirements in terms of both flexibility and maintaining the highest security standards
Tomasz Kłos, IT Specialist
If a company is looking for a reliable and easy-to-use solution to protect virtual environments based on Red Hat Virtualization, Storware vProtect is definitely a platform worth recommending.
Maciej Rybicki, Head of IT Systems Support Department
We are most satisfied with support for Xen and XCP-NG, as well as maintained support for tape libraries (via IBM Spectrum Protect). These features are unique on the private cloud backup software market.

Mirosław Piechota, Director of the IT Department
Robert Borys, IT Department Director
We needed a solution that would work for our oVirt cloud. We have several physical locations that all have different VM’s running on them. We wanted to be able to snap the vm’s and move them to different locations for redundancy reasons. None of the solutions worked that we were able to find. We started down the path of developing our own system when we found vProtect. With the help of Storware, we have been able to get exactly what we wanted.
Brett Whittacre, CEO
Storware provides above all rich support for RedHat Virtualization (RHV), oVirt and KVM. vProtect complements the offer of central backup system providers such as Veritas NetBackup, Dell EMC NetWorker, and IBM Spectrum Protect with supporting open virtual platforms.
Integration with ObjectStorage (AWS S3, OS SWIFT), open RESTful API (integration with the CloudForms platform) and a rich product roadmap, indicates strong cooperation of both companies.
