Backup strategies and extra features

In regards to transport modes, there are four choices in a Storware vProtect VMware Backup Proxy:

  • automatic
  • direct storage access
  • virtual appliance (Hot Add)
  • network (NBD)

In the variant where node was installed on the Proxy VM, staging space must be located on a virtual disk attached to Proxy VM or using RDM. This strategy uses NBD transport mode and supports incremental backups. Each disk of VM can be easily excluded from backup. Snapshot management is also available for VMware environment. Backup process starts with creating snapshot. Next stage of this strategy is export of VM metadata and VM disks (in RAW format). After that, temporary snapshot is deleted to keep maximum efficiency of the VM.

Do it your way with vProtect: feel the freedom of choice from the hypervisor to the backup destination.

Significantly reduce daily management time

  • Disaster recovery plans – test backup automatically to ensure recoverability. To verify that your backed up VM is bootable and was not damaged before the backup was performed, which can happen from a number of reasons – use recovery plans. This is the best way to guarantee reliable recovery of verified backups.

  • Automate VM protection with custom or predefined backup policies.
