Support for Incremental Hyper-V backups on Server 2012 up to Server 2016.
Virtualization is already widely used and its use will continue to grow in the future. Microsoft is increasingly catching up with VMware and provides a comprehensive virtualization solution with Hyper-V. A growing number of our partners and customers prefer Hyper-V to VMware as they are used to the Windows Platform and get a better price performance ratio with Hyper-V compared to VMware.
As Hyper-V environments continue to grow by number of hosted VM’s and amount of data, it is important to be able to only backup changes to ensure faster backups by reducing the amount of data to be backed up. With Hyper-V incremental support, that is now possible.
Additional NEW Features or Improvements:
Support for Hyper-V Clusters including Server 2016.
New UI option to duplicate already created jobs to simplify configuration.
New UI option to choose which transport level to use for VMware VM backup.
Improved speed of file-level restore view with multiple splits and large amount of files.
Improved Command Server to Agent communication for larger installations.
Improvements in Single-File Restore for VMware and Hyper-V.
Improvements for Windows Cluster configuration.
Central Media Management
Supports central media management for local and offsite storage.
Backups and the associated media can be quickly and easily found within the central admin console.
Bare Metal Recovery (BMR)
Fast, easy data recovery to new or dissimilar hardware after a loss or disaster.
Supports Windows and Linux. VMs can be restored to different physical hosts.
Restore backups from another site in cases of local data loss.
Remove access to disk pools at another location.
Restore from Other Media
Restore from a media that differs from the original, such as a disk from an external replicated disk pool.
Offers maximum protection from irretrievable data loss due to the loss of a backup.
Offers flexible placement of storage media on the network.
Distributed metadata allows restores without a central metadata database.
Comprehensive features for Hyper-V and VMware (see below).
High-Speed Granular Restore
Fast granular data extraction for offline SQL databases, Exchange Server mailbox stores and Outlook files.
Direct access to unmounted database tables and mail store contents.
Search query tools allow for specific query exports for faster restores.
Restore Best Practices for NovaStor® DataCenter
3 Backups - 2 Locations - 1 Restore Path: This is the 3-2-1 Restore method used by NovaStor DataCenter. You can choose the media device that works best for your environment, with plenty of options: Disk, NAS, RDX, Tape. You can also create multiple backups and distribute them across multiple locations.
You can also create multiple backups and distribute them to other locations.
DataCenter centralizes access to all backup and replications at all locations, thus reducing the complexities of data restores.
Keep your backups organized and retain complete control.
Virtual Machine Recovery
Restore Virtual Machines NovaStor® DataCenter
Spinning up a new virtual machine can be done rather quickly.
