NovaBACKUP Business Essentials is Reliable, Secure, and Flexible Backup and Recovery for Your Physical and Virtual Machines
Reduce your backup window requirements with agentless VM backups of Microsoft Hyper-V hosts and guest systems. Protect all of your virtual host Hyper-V machines with unlimited virtual machines - and no add-on costs for each additional virtual host. Backup your entire Hyper-V VM or perform incremental backups.
Quickly and easily perform a VM live-migration to move an entire virtual machine to a new physical machine. Or conversely, spin up a new Hyper-V virtual machine using a backup of a physical or a virtual machine.
Leveraging Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS), allows you to perform a live backup of your Hyper-V virtual machine with zero downtime. The VM can remain online while an application-consistent snapshot is taken of your Hyper-V virtual machine to capture a point-in-time, with full data integrity.
By utilizing VSS, you can run application-aware, Hyper-V VM level backup on Hyper-V VMs to protect Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server databases and applications to ensure that your data is consistent.
Create application-consistent, image-level backups on vSphere virtual machines by leveraging VMware snapshot capabilities. Protect your VSS-aware applications and databases without shutting them down and easily roll-back to an earlier point-in-time VMware VM backup with its configuration, OS, applications, associated data, and system state intact.
Backup live VMware VMs on-the-fly with no server downtime by leveraging Microsoft VSS service. Remain online, without interruption while capturing a VMware VM level backup of your VMware VM, with full data integrity.
Complete VMware vSphere data protection for vCenter managed and standalone ESXi workloads. Backup any VMware virtual machine (with vStorage API enabled), in minutes. Run full VM backup jobs and incremental or differential backup by enabling Change Block Tracking (CBT) to identify changed date blocks on your virtual machines.
The migration from physical to virtual (P2V) servers allows IT Admins with the opportunity to consolidate, allowing for a reduction in hardware resources as servers become better utilized. With Virtual to Physical (V2P), you can migrate to new hardware with ease. Changing hypervisors? With Cross-Hypervisor support (V2V) you can spin up a new virtual machine in minutes.
One-step restore of Hyper-V virtual machine in a single pass to restore a VM to the same host or to an alternate location. Restore to a point-in-time or to the most recent backup. Plus, with the option to backup direct to VHDx, you can quickly restore a physical machine to a virtual machine in a Hyper-V environment in just minutes.
With granular recovery, you can quickly retrieve individual files, emails or folders from a Hyper-V snapshot, using our Virtual Dashboard, without the need to mount or restore the entire VM - all with just a few clicks. You can restore files to the same host or to an alternate location.
With synthetic one-step VM restore, your VMware vSphere virtual machine can be restored in a single pass - regardless of the number of previous backups. Configure version history to easily roll-back to an earlier VMware VM backup and restore time-critical systems to the same or dissimilar hardware.
Restore a single file, folder, email or mailbox from any protected VMware virtual machine for incredibly fast recovery. Restore the latest backup or to a point-in-time to the same host or a different VMware host.
