Virtual environments comprising virtual machines and virtual servers offer a new set of challenges. Although having more virtual machines provides flexibility it also increases the VM backup administration and when backups are triggered. Instead of kicking off backups for a handful of systems, it turns in a handful of systems times 5 or 10. VM’s draw on a hosting server’s resources, and they impact them during backups in a tremendous way.
AIMstor Live Backup offers several key benefits to Virtual Environments:
- First, AIMstor is designed so that a multitude of virtual machines and virtual servers can be added to a backup system easily - reducing the administration overhead.
- Second, because AIMstor can apply live backup, it eliminates the VM backup window as there is no longer the need to hit machines with wasteful backup process.
- AIMstor automatically senses systems that are virtual or physical, allowing the administrator to create convenient groups and policies specific to VM needs.
