Protect all of your virtual host Hyper-V machines with unlimited virtual machines - and no add-on costs for each additional virtual host.
Complete VMware vSphere data protection for vCenter managed and standalone ESXi workloads. Backup, replicate and restore any VMware virtual machine (with vStorage API enabled), in minutes. Run full, incremental or differential backup of your virtual machines.
Protect all of your virtual host VMware vSphere machines with unlimited virtual machines - and no add-on costs for each additional virtual host.
NovaBACKUP Business Essentials is Reliable, Secure, and Flexible Backup, Replication and Recovery for Your Physical and Virtual Machines
Reduce your backup window 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, image-based backups 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 an image-level backup with 256-Bit AES encryption enabled to ensure a secure point-in-time 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.
Replicate your VMs to a remote site using block-level transfer from one Hyper-V host to another Hyper-V host and eliminate your chance of experiencing a single point of failure. Business-critical data requires an additional level of data security, and VM replication gives you that fail-over protection of your Hyper-V environment, allowing you to recover within minutes in case of a disaster.
Replication provides the best recovery time objective (RTO) values, as it provides you with an exact copy of your VM that is in a ready-to-go-live state. VM replication is highly recommended for business-critical VMs that need minimum RTOs.
With VMware Replication, you can replicate data from either a single ESXi / vCenter host to itself or from one host to another. By enabling Changed Block Tracking (CBT), replication jobs can be performed as incremental backups.
VMware backup replication using an image-level backup allows you to replicate data to an offsite location to fail over an entire VM in just a few clicks, perform non-disruptive recoverability testing and ensure that you have a working DR plan in place to minimize downtime, prevent data loss and achieve low Recovery Point Objectives (RPO).
Our cloud storage offers you a secure offsite destination for data redundancy, giving you an extra layer of protection for your physical and virtual machine backups.
Protect your data from accidental file deletion, hardware crashes, computer theft, natural disasters and ransomware. With cyberattacks on the rise, its critical to secure your business data proactively with multiple layers of protection, so you never have to face the possibility paying a ransom to access your business data. Securing your VM backups using NovaBACKUP’s cloud backup service is your best defense.
NovaBACKUP Business Essentials protect your physical and virtual Windows Servers with SQL and Exchange in a single, all-inclusive backup and recovery solution with granular restore.
Our local and cloud backup software for Hyper-V and VMware safeguards ALL your data (not just your virtual machines) with military-grade, 256-bit AES encryption.
