Main Features

Easy management

Consistent licensing

Recovery plan

Recovery Plans

With Storware it is possible not only easily automate backup but also recovery processes. This saves you time in carrying out the necessary tests and guarantees that in the event of a failure our backup is valid

oVirt UI integration plugin

This integration allows the administrator not only to monitor tasks progress and other things related to storage space or backup performance. Simply and intuitively it allows, for example, to assign virtual machines to selected backup policies, perform backups or restore selected machines on demand.

Automate VMs backup policy assignment. Storware uses tags and regular expressions (regex) to have your VM protected directly from your oVirt management console.

5 agentless backup strategies

5 backup strategies: export storage domain (API v3), Proxy VM (snapshot-disk attachment, API v4), snapshot-chains (disk image transfer from hypervisor manager, API v4.2+), SSH transfer and Changed Block Tracking. CBT in oVirt simplifies, speeds up, and improves robustness by backing up only changed blocks, and avoiding temporary snapshots.

oVirt VMs backup strategies may be more or less effective depending on the customer’s IT infrastructure. The choice between various backup strategies depends on the technical capabilities, the size of the organization, or the specific needs and requirements of a client.
