Backup Solution for Microsoft Hyper-V
Many small and medium businesses are using Microsoft Hyper-V to virtualize their data center. With the latest release of Windows 2016, Microsoft has improved the hypervisor capabilities and introduced a lot of new features. Hence, it is now on par with the other sophisticated hypervisors and it certainly helps to increase the user base for Hyper-V. The IT administrators using Hyper-V environment for their hypervisor purpose are in need of a comprehensive backup solution to avoid the OS/Disk corruption and other disasters. It should be noted that creating a backup policy for the Hyper-V VMs is not a simple process. Although, Hyper-V itself has a snapshot functionality, it is not an option for backup. Also, the backup software available for Hyper-V backup are not performing well due to the lack of comprehensive backup APIs from Microsoft.
Vembu has developed it’s own proprietary driver to backup the Hyper-V VMs in an efficient manner especially with up to 5X improvement in performance over other backup softwares.
- Agentless Hyper-V Backup
- Supports Windows Server 2016
- Supports Cluster Shared Volumes and SMB Share
- Application-aware image processing and Transaction log truncations

Full VM Recovery – Recover the backed up VMs permanently to the same or different Hyper-V Server
Changed Block Tracking – Efficient block level incremental backup processed using Vembu proprietary CBT (Change Block Tracking) Driver for the VMs running on Hyper-V environments
Advanced Retention Policies -Basic and Advanced (GFS) retentions policies helps to merge the multiple recovery points and reduces the time taken to restore the backed up VMs
Offsite or Remote Backup – Replicate redundant copy of backup data to your own offsite data center or to Vembu Cloud for data redundancy and disaster recovery purpose
Instant File Recovery – Recover individual files and folders instantly from backed up VMs without restoring the entire VM data
Cross Hypervisor Migration (V2V) – VMBackup helps to migrate VMs running on Hyper-V to VMware or KVM and vice versa by downloading the virtual disk files like VHD, VHDX, VMDK, VMDK-Flat, RAW from the recovery console
Vembu Universal Recovery -Instantly recover individual application items from Microsoft Applications such as Microsoft Exchange, SQL, SharePoint and Active Directory
