This enables you to evaluate performance, identify potential bottlenecks, and optimize your backup processes.

Powerful Backup and Recovery for KVM

Snapshot Management

Experience the benefits of snapshot management, which significantly enhance the simplicity and efficiency of your backup and recovery operations. By enabling you to capture the exact state of a volume at a specific moment in time, snapshots provide a powerful tool for data preservation.

File-level Restore

Unlock the convenience of file-level restore (FLR) with our solution. With FLR, you can easily retrieve individual files directly through our intuitive web user interface (UI) by accessing mounted backups. This functionality empowers you to browse and access copies of specific files or seamlessly restore them from restore points to any desired location.

Recovery Plans

Streamline your disaster recovery efforts with our automated recovery plans. Our solution simplifies the process by automatically testing your backups to ensure their recoverability. This feature eliminates the need for manual testing, saving you time and effort while maintaining the highest level of data protection.

Flexible Scheduling

Backup and recovery solutions for KVM often provide flexible scheduling options, allowing you to set up automated backup jobs at specific intervals or times that suit your needs. This ensures regular and consistent backups without manual intervention.

Choose future-oriented solution

In all circumstances, we ensure data availability and business continuity at every level for multi-format data.


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.
