    Hyper-V Backup

Microsoft Hyper-V Backup

There’s no denying the benefits of virtualization, and Microsoft Hyper-V technology continues to grow its market share as businesses adopt this technology. But protecting all your virtualized assets, and managing them in a disaster situation, can get complicated without the right backup and recovery solution. The last thing a backup administrator needs is unnecessary complexity when a specific set of data becomes urgently required.

Agentless VM Backups on Hyper-V Virtual Machines

YKP Systems Hyper-V backup technology helps organizations meet their recovery point objectives by restoring specific files, virtual machines and entire Hyper-V environments to their destinations of choice, without a complex learning curve.

Incremental Hyper-V Backup

YKP Systems now supports incremental backups of Hyper-V Virtual Machines on Hyper-V 2012 and Hyper-V 2016. Now you can run agentless VM level backups on Hyper-V virtual machines, resulting in less data usage and shorter backup windows. This update offers reliable incremental backup jobs to granular item recovery pools for virtual machines under Microsoft Hyper-V.

Hyper-V Cluster support

Virtual machines that are set up as a cluster (CSV Volume) can be backed up from any cluster node to conveniently generate a cluster-wide snapshot, capturing the entire CSV. In this case, the other Hyper-V cluster nodes continue to run with full performance and are not affected by the backup. Virtual machine live-migration allows you to move an entire virtual machine from one physical server to another without experiencing downtime.
