Instant VM recovery for VMware

Do you have mission critical production VMs which can afford little downtime? CloudBacko has newly developed the VM Run Direct feature that enables you to minimize the downtime of your mission critial VM to minutes. Now, you can recover a VM instantly from its backup without the need to restore the backed up image into the original VMware ESXi host first. CloudBacko can start the VM directly from its backup, and makes it accessible to users on the target VMware ESXi VM host right away. See how it works in this video:

Granular Restore of files from Guest VMs

Need a fast and convenient way to retrieve your desired files on guest VMs? CloudBacko's Granular Restore feature enables you to access and restore individual files within a backed up VM image without the need to spin-up or fully restore the VM first. It helps you greatly reduce backup time, storage resources and management effort for redundant backups.


Backup to local and offsite to eliminate data loss possibility

To avoid disastrous data loss, the best practice is to keep at least 3 copies of your data:
  1. one on your original machine;
  2. one to local storage such as a NAS device dedicated for backup;
  3. another one to offsite storage, either your FTP/SFTP server or your subscribed cloud storage, to prevent local disaster from destroying your local data.
CloudBacko supports a wide-range of free and paid public cloud storage, including Amazon S3, AWS compatible storages, Google Cloud Storage, Google Drive, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft OneDrive, OpenStack, Rackspace Cloud Files, and Dropbox.

CloudBacko allows you backing up to local and offsite to eliminate data loss possibility.

Data needs to be encrypted when backing up to offsite

When backing up your guest VMs to offsite location, since it is not your own environment, make sure to enable encryption to prevent somebody from stealing your data. With CloudBacko, no lazy encrypting keys such as "abc123" or "123456" will be used. It provides unbreakable encryption to your SQL backup, as all the data and filenames can be encrypted with an AES 256-bit truly randomized key. Even a 10.51 Pentaflops supercomputer needs 3.31 x 1056 years to crack such key. Even hackers will not be able to access your backed up VMs on the cloud.

CloudBacko encrypts your data with 256-bit full length randomly generated encryption key.

Schedule it to run periodically, by itself

When your mission critical guest VM is down, you don't want to restore to a backup that was manually taken a year ago. Therefore, you need a solution that can automatically run once or several times a day by itself based on your pre-configured schedule, so that you can restore to the latest version when needed. CloudBacko allows you to define your own schedules to run your VMware guest VMs backup (e.g. after work everyday).


CloudBacko allows you to set backup schedule.

Large guest VMs can be backed up quickly

Backing up large guest virtual machines to offsite can be problematic. CloudBacko has VMware's Changed Block Tracking (CBT) technology integrated that can offer you fast guest VM backup to local and offsite destinations.
