Reliable VMware Backup

Reliable VMware Backup

Create incremental, app-aware, image-based backups of your VMware vSphere VMs and ensure the consistency of your database and application data of Microsoft SQL, Active Directory and Microsoft Exchange.
Backup Data Tiering

Backup Data Tiering

Avoid a single point of failure by performing free vSphere backups and sending them and their copies to local storage, offsite or CIFS/NFS shares. Switch to the Enterprise Edition to store backups in a public cloud (Amazon S3, Wasabi, Backblaze B2, Azure Blob) and tape.
Multi-Platform Support

Protect only VMware VMs or combine with other platforms if your environment is mixed. With Free Edition, you can protect the data of up to 5 Microsoft 365 users and 10 workloads, which can be:
Ransomware Recovery

Ransomware Recovery

Enable immutability for backups to protect them from ransomware encryption. Deploy immutable repositories as part of a hardened virtual appliance or create local Linux-based repositories to save immutable backups. Upgrade to the Enterprise Edition to create immutable backups in the cloud (Amazon S3, Wasabi, Backblaze B2, Azure Blob) or send backup copies to tape for an additional layer of security against ransomware.
Instant Granular Recovery

Instant Granular Recovery

Restore files, folders and app objects instantly with granular recovery. Easily browse needed data and restore files to the original or a custom location with all access permissions preserved.
