What can cinchin do for citrix  

Who cares about Citrix XenServer?

When I spend time on various forums related to hypervisor preferences, I often see Citrix XenServer users having to justify their choice of hypervisor. Five years ago, its market share was second only to VMware. Now, Citrix themselves have made XenServer open source. Of course, they still provide full support options and hardware certifications, but they have made only one release update after launching the open source strategy in 2013. As a result, people can be pretty critical of XenServer. At the same time, more and more virtual backup machine vendors are choosing not to support the new citrix version in their plans .

 

What has vinchin done and what will vinchin do

Vinchin takes a different stance, Continue to provide strong backup support for Citrix, even with the latest version. Vinchin has been serving overseas customers since 2018. From the very beginning, we have cooperated with Citrix and obtained Citrix Ready certification, Through years of cooperation and cooperation, our cooperation with Citrix is getting deeper and deeper. Now, we became citrix Partner and Independent Software Vendor. In the future, the cooperation between Vinchin and Citrix will be deeper and more powerful features will be introduced.

 

Why do customers like our products

Agentless backup

Previously, customers were frustrated that they could not secure XenServer at the hypervisor level. It can only use agents to protect the XenServer virtual machine at the guest level. But vinchin use agentless backup, so customers no longer have to install agents on every virtual machine, which leaves them with a lot of time and energy

Image-based hypervisor backup

Image-based hypervisor backup for XenServer VMs with granular and full VM recovery

Granular restore

It is a useful feature to restore your virtual machine from file level, this  feature works independently without any interaction with the virtual platform, so even if any unexpected disaster happened to destroy the whole virtual infrastructure, you can still retrieve important files and data by using backups on Vinchin backup & recovery. Granular restore feature works independently without any interaction with the virtual platform, so even if any unexpected disaster happened to destroy the whole virtual infrastructure, you can still retrieve important files and data by using backups on Vinchin backup & recovery.

Forever incremental backup

A full backup will be performed only once at the beginning, and the future backups will only backup the new and changed data blocks since the last backup

SpeedKit 

It's a vinchin unique feature which is an CBT alternative for the virtual platforms which don’t have CBT support yet, such as the XenServer versions under 7.4

Flexible Node Expansion

Use Vinchin backup server with backup node(s) expansion for backing up large-size XenServer/Citrix Hypervisor clusters, adding full scalability of backup infrastructure for the future growth of your business yet 0 extra maintenance cost through centralized management of backup nodes.

Deduplication & Compression

2 powerful data reduction features. While deduplication works to detect duplicate data blocks especially the zeroed data blocks and store unique data blocks only, compression helps to further reduce the backup size by at least 50% by compressing deduplicated data blocks

There are a lot of features that haven't been shown yet, We would like you to have a POC test as this is the most practical way to check that your expectations are met.

Our new version will also be released in October this year, V2V and more utility features will be supported!
