- Eliminate the need to re-install OS during recovery process with a comprehensive Image level backup of VM’s
- Reduce storage requirements with snapshot compression and minimize expenditure on storage
- Automatically backup critical applications like MSSQL, MySQL, Exchange etc in virtual machines
- Supports backing up Windows, Linux, Mac, FreeBSD virtual machines
Backup VMWare vSphere, ESX and ESXi
NSU provides an agentless, image level backup of Virtual Machines available under ESX/ESXi/VCenter using VMWare Plugin. The plugin uses VMWare API’s to backup the selected Guest OSes and then upload it to the backup server. The client can be installed in any machine to backup the Virtual Machines. It can restore the virtual machine including the virtual machine’s state and the data includes all the files that make-up the virtual machine, including disks, memory, and other devices, such as virtual network interface cards.
Backup Hyper-V Servers
NSU installed in the Hyper-V Host Server can backup the VMs running on it using the Microsoft VSS to make sure the VMs are in a consistent state before backing up. NSU backs up only the changed data in the VMs during incremental backup. NSU can backup the data directly to the remote backup server without requiring a temporary storage space in the Hyper-V server that is backed up.
Backup Citrix Xenserver
NSU implements backups at the hypervisor level, creating image snapshots of each virtual machine in the Citrix Xenserver. This allows a fast restore of full virtual machines to the original virtualization server or to another Xen machine. NSU’s Xenserver backup provides an automated way to directly stream snapshots to the backup server without creating a local dump or a local copy.
