Top Reasons to Choose Vinchin Backup & Recovery

Higher Backup Performance

Streamline VM Backup

Vinchin Backup & Recovery automates virtual machine backups for oVirt. With the flexible backup timetable and strategy options the software provides, oVirt backup jobs can be fully customizable. Users can set any oVirt automatic full backup, incremental backup, and differential backup jobs to run at daily, weekly and monthly basis effortlessly to adapt current IT operation status, minimizing manual configuration workloads.


Shorter VM Backup Windows

Vinchin Backup & Recovery supports users to back up oVirt virtual machines via LAN-Free path without any production network resource consumption, which is achieved by direct access of SAN (Storage Area Network) including FC, iSCSI, and NFS. This feature help significantly boost VM backup speed and shorten backup windows so that high data volumes can be transferred even during business hours.

Powerful oVirt CBT & SpeedKit

As legacy incremental backups usually take lots of time for the traversal of the whole file system, Vinchin Backup & Recovery is able to help with oVirt CBT(working on ovirt 4.4) and SpeedKit, a CBT alternative (working on oVirt 4.3 and older releases where there's no CBT available). By fully utilizing snapshot and oVirt REST API technologies, changed data blocks can be quickly identified, which greatly improves the backup speed of oVirt VMs.

Complete Data Protection


Enhanced Data Availability

Saving multiple copies of your critical VM backups is always the best practice to ensure data availability stands at a high level. Vinchin Backup & Recovery supports you to not only copy oVirt backups to both remote sites and secondary storage, but also archive copies to public cloud for long-term data retention. In this way, even under worst-case scenario that both production and backup hosts at primary site were damaged, there’re always highly recoverable backup copies for you to use.

Flexible Data Restore Options

With Vinchin Backup & Recovery, you can fully utilize important oVirt backups in multiple data recovery scenarios including automated full VM restore, instant VM restore and file-level granular restore. You can choose the best recovery solutions regarding the issue type of your virtual machine. No matter it’s the partial soft breakdown, business interruption or severe VM damage that occurs, there’s always a best recovery solution to help.

Best Backup Storage Saving Results

Vinchin Backup & Recovery not only works to improve the flexibility and efficiency of oVirt data protection, but also helps on storage saving optimization. With data reduction features like deduplication, compression and Vinchin BitDetector the software offers, you can ensure only unique and valuable data blocks are saved to the backup depository after being compressed by at least 50%, making more space to save valuable backup data.

Improved TCO

Intuitive Management

To simplify backup management workloads for every IT team, Vinchin Backup & Recovery integrates all oVirt data protection features into one easy-to-use web console. You can easily find the thing you want from the sidebar where functions are clearly divided into monitor center, backup & recovery for different workloads, resources and system setup etc. Allows you to easily configure and start a specific backup or restore job through 3-4 steps.


Manpower Savings

Vinchin Backup & Recovery eliminates complex backup agent installation by adapting agentless virtual machine backup technology for lighter oVirt data protection. Traditional agent-based VM backup usually requires a lot more resources to keep backups processing smoothly. But by using oVirt backup solutions from Vinchin, you can get VM backups immediately started in a much more business-friendly way with no more pre-agent deployment and maintenance cost needed.

Optimized IT Administration

IT administrators are offen overwhelmed with different projects, so we designed some user-friendly monitor and notification functionalities to make you grab hold of each oVirt data protection job running result in time. Job alerts and notifications can be sent to you via email daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. Data visualization interface built in the web management console let you see in sight the working status of each functionality partition in real-time through a large display screen.

Advanced oVirt Recovery


Accurate and Fast File Restore

Sometimes you may have the need to restore a single file due to mistaken deletion or partial data damage after system failure. To solve such issue, Vinchin Backup & Recovery offers a more convenient functionality to help only recover the file rather than the entire VM. You can use granuler restore to easily recover the target file or folder by using any restore point which is before the deletion or damage. As this feature runs 100% independently, you can use it whenever you need without worrying about making impacts on other VM recovery jobs.

Shorten RTOs to 1 Minute

When talking of the key elements of building a successful enterprise, business continuity always counts. For mission-critical IT services, Vinchin Backup & Recovery offers instant restore to quickly recover oVirt VMs from service interruption in 15 seconds. A new virtual disk image will be virtualized based on the original backup file and be shared with the newly created oVirt VM in the production host via NFS. 1 minute later, the crashed VM is available again.
