IDrive now supports virtual machine backup for VMware software. VMware enables you to run several different operating systems under one roof through virtualization, but protecting VMware environments with traditional backup can be costly, slow, and complicated. That’s why IDrive has developed a cost-effective and easy-to-use cloud backup solution to keep your VMs secure from disaster and easily accessible from the cloud.
VMware runs on your computer or server multiple virtual machines, which act like real computers with their own operating systems. Each of these VMs can have its own programs and hardware, yet be managed all under one master operating system. But the very same feature that makes VMware great–several different operating systems running on a single master OS–leaves you vulnerable to massive data loss if disaster strikes. That’s why it’s essential to backup your VMware offsite with IDrive, enabling you to recover your virtual machines and maintain operations.
VMware Backup boasts a host of features, including:
- Backup unlimited virtual machines in VMware ESXi (5.5, 6.0), Vcenter
- Incremental and scheduled backup
- Zero downtime with hot backups of virtual machines
- Enhanced security with 256-bit AES encryption on transfer and storage, or private key encryption, a user-defined key known only by the user
- Use in conjunction with VMware vCenter
Smarter Backup, Complete Recovery
IDrive offers one of the most affordable VMware backup solutions by reducing storage and bandwidth usage with incremental backups. To accelerate your backup time, we allow you to backup only the latest changes to your VM files, so you don’t waste time and money on duplicate backups.
You can also backup an unlimited number of VMs, ensuring that all of your VMware properties are not only secure from disaster, but highly accessible when you need them. If disaster strikes, you can restore VMs from anywhere, anytime to keep operations running smoothly.
Military Grade Encryption
All VMware files backed up to the IDrive cloud are secured with tough military grade 256-bit AES encryption. Data is encrypted upon transfer and storage to ensure total security.
For an added layer of protection, IDrive offers Private Key Encryption. You choose the unique key code that unlocks your data, which is not stored on IDrive’s servers. That means only you hold the key to your VMware environments.
Protecting your virtual environments can be a challenge, but with IDrive, it’s as easy as signing up.
