  • Scalability to meet growing needs.
  • Ensure business continuity/disaster recovery (BCDR).

Secure, reliable, and fast backups

To ensure data reliability, reduce the amount of backup data transferred, and ultimately improve backup performance, Cloudbacko Go uses a range of different technologies:

  • Select all VMs or specific VMs to backup.
  • Select all or specific virtual disks of each VM to backup.  
  • Microsoft VSS (Volume Shadow Copy service) which takes a snapshot of the guest VMs to ensure complete data consistency.
  • Application awareness on Windows guest VMs means all data in memory and pending transactions is automatically flushed to disk to guarantee application-level data consistency.
  • Windows RCT (Resilient Change Tracking) technology to detect data block level changes on a guest VM, which means only data blocks that have changed since the last backup job are included in the backup data.
  • Automatically excluding the swap file and deleted data blocks on the virtual disk(s) from the backup data. 
  • Data deduplication to detect and remove duplicate data only backing up unique data. 


Backup Hyper V guests using CloudBacko Go

What are the benefits?

When disaster strikes you have flexible guest VM recovery options:

Standard recovery options:

  • Restore guest VMs to the original location on the same Hyper-V host.
  • Restore guest VMs to an alternate storage location on the same Hyper-V host.
  • Restore guest VMs as a set of raw files for manual recovery on the same Hyper-V host or a different Hyper-V host.

Advanced recovery options:

  • Using granular restore, mount the virtual disk(s) of the guest VM directly from the backup file located on the backup destination. Then use CloudBacko Go UI or Window File Explorer to recover files/folders.
  • Using VM Run Direct, start up and run a virtual machine directly from the backup file located on the backup destination. Without the need to physically restore it to the Hyper-V host.
  • Using Live Migration can physically restore running guest VM back to the Hyper-V host.
