Reliable backups

Storware provides VM-level, container-level, agentless full and incremental consistent backup. By using Storware Nodes installed directly in the Nutanix clusters, you’ll be able to perform your backups much faster. For Nutanix Support supports Changed Region Tracking (CRT) feature.

Flexible recovery

Disaster Recovery based on supported enterprise backup providers, object storage vendors or any mounted file-system. File-level restore using mountable backups directly from Web UI, and Automated DR tests feature to ensure recoverability.

Snapshot management

Keep the state of the virtual machine at any given time. One can quickly backup not only data but also the configuration of the running virtual machines. This is an excellent supplement for data backup strategy.

Open RESTful API

All communication between 3rd party systems goes via RESTful API exposed by Storware Server. Tasks are being performed by the Node behind the scenes. End-user is going to use only a 3rd party system to invoke and monitor the status of the tasks.

Storware Backup and Recovery Provides:

  • Support for multiple open and commercial virtual environments under one license
  • Support for multiple backup destinations: local file system or a NFS/CIFS share, object storage (cloud providers) or enterprise backup providers
  • Efficient, incremental backup of AHV VMs with CBT/CRT (Changed-Region Tracking)
  • Support for vSphere and Hyper-V environments
  • 2 different modes: independent backup Server (local or remote file system, object storage)
  • Backup and recovery for Nutanix Volume Groups (with CRT-based incremental backups)
  • Backup and recovery for Nutanix Files (with CFT-based incremental backups)

Feel the freedom of choice

Storware is a single platform that is able to backup multiple virtualization platforms to multiple backup providers. So there is no vendor lock-in. If you need to migrate VMs to the different hypervisor, you still can use the same solution to back them up.

With backup providers situation remains the same – if you would like to replace enterprise-grade backup provider with a plain file system – you still may have an option to backup your applications – just select a different target in UI.

How to backup Nutanix Acropolis with Storware

Storware Node installed as Proxy VM on the Cluster | VM disk snapshot attached and dumped via Proxy VM. Pros:

  • new Nutanix AHV API v3 used
  • no additional cloning required
  • disk exclusion support

Scale as you grow: scale-out by adding as many nodes as you need; scale-up by assigning more resources to Storware node.
