See how CloudBacko's VMware backup works

VM Backup through vCenter / standalone machine

If you have multiple VMware ESXi / vSphere hosts managed by a Windows vCenter machine, run CloudBacko Pro on the vCenter machine. Then, the software will be able to let you see and select all the VMs on your multiple hosts for ESXi backup / vSphere backup.

If you just have ESXi hosts without any vCenter, you can run CloudBacko Pro on a Windows machine that is on the same network as the ESXi hosts for guest VM backup.

Granular files restore

After you have performed ESXi backup / vSphere backup / vCenter backup with Granular Restore feature enabled, this feature allows 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.

Instant VM recovery

Do you have mission critical production VMs in your VMware ESXi hosts 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:

Local and offsite backups

To avoid disastrous data loss, the best practice is to keep at least 3 copies of your data:

  1. one on your original VMware environment;
  2. one to local storage such as a NAS device within your office;
  3. another one to offsite storage, either your FTP/SFTP server or cloud storage, as an additional protection.

CloudBacko Pro supports a wide-range other free and paid public cloud storage, including Amazon S3, Azure, AWS compatible storages, Google Cloud Storage, Google Drive, OpenStack, OneDrive, Rackspace Cloud Files, and Dropbox for you to choose.

Secure data encryption

For VMware backup 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.

Scheduled automatic backup

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 run automatically 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).


Backing up large guest VMs 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.

Super fast incremental backup with VMware CBT technology
Zero VM downtime with scheduled hot backup
Speed comparable with any other VMware backup solutions
Can be used in conjunction with VMware vCenter
Support guest virtual machine (VM) level backup of free version ESXi
Support VMDK level backup
Restore VM to raw files in VMDK format


It's always good to keep mulitple previous versions of your Windows System backup, so that when you realize it's not the latest backup you want to restore to, you can still choose an earlier version to restore. With CloudBacko's powerful retention policy setup, it is simple and flexible to define various versioning rules to suit your version retention needs.

Clear insights and reporting

With CloudBacko's reporting tool, you can get clear visibility into the VMware backup details of all destinations, including usage trend, backup and restore reports, log for warnings and errors, etc.
