Key Features


Backup Node Expansion

When the Hyper-V environment that needs to be backed-up is relatively large, you can expand your backup infrastructure on demand by adding extra Vinchin backup node(s) to eliminate the orginal backup server overloaded. The backup nodes will share the responsiblity of processing massive backup jobs. A high volume of data will be backed up distributedly, and you can simply manage all nodes still from the default web console.


Agentless Backup

Vinchin Backup & Recovery utilizes agentless image-based backup technique to back up Hyper-V VMs. By backing up data directly from hypervisor layer without any agent installation needed inside each Hyper-V VM, effortless software deployment can be easily achieved, requiring less resource consumption of production environment.


Deduplication & Compression

Vinchin Deduplication and Compression are two powerful data reduction techniques that're designed to greatly reduce the size of your Hyper-V backups. While Deduplication excludes duplicate data blocks especially the zeroed data blocks, and compression works to minimize backup data size. Therefore, backup efficiency can be greatly improved and the use rate of backup storage can be maximized.


File-level Recovery

Vinchin Backup & Recovery is also able to perform Hyper-V data recovery at file level. You can restore specific folders or files saved in a restore point to the production host using Vinchin Granular Restore. In case you mistakenly delete some files, this feature will help quickly retrieve certain files you want without needing to recover the whole virtual machine.



BitDectector is another Vinchin unique data reduction technique designed to realize advanced data extraction for more effective backup storage saving. Based on the working principle of excluding swap files, partition gap and unpartitioned space, only 100% valuable data depository, so that backup space can be further saved up for more newly written data.


Offsite Backup Copy

For higher data integrity purpose, you can choose to save another independent backup copy in the offsite backup environment, preparing for the worst when both local production and backup environment are damaged to recover target Hyper-V VM back to local or offsite data center.


Forever Incremental Backup

An advanced incremental backup strategy to further save more valuable time and storage space by performing once-off full backup at the start and then incremental backup jobs for the rest. For users who have sufficient local storage, you can also combine with SpeedKit, the Vinchin self-developed unique feature based on snapshot technology that can be put into best use as CBT alternative to quickly identify changed data blocks for much faster backup speed.


Archive to Cloud

Vinchin supports archiving local VM backups to nearly 10 public cloud storages, including Amazon S3, Azure Blob, Ceph S3, Wasabi and more. Provide you with an alternative to use the cost-effecive storage for high-standard long-term retention demand, and help comply with local data security laws and support with Cloud DR, giving triple guarantee on data security.
