Our Key Benefits

Consistent Backup Guarantees

Vinchin’s physical server backup solution utilizes VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) technique for Windows Server Backup to take application-aware snapshots of NTFS volumes, while a self-developed snapshot technique is also built in for Linux server users to guarantee the consistency of backup data.

All-in-one Data Protection

Vinchin Backup & Recovery can be more than just Linux and Windows server backup. The all-in-one solution also plays full compatibility with popular databases and 15+ virtual platforms including VMware, Hyper-V, and XenServer. You can build a well-rounded backup infrastructure for virtual machines, physical servers, and databases all at once through a single pane of glass.

User-Friendly Administration

With a single web-based management console, you can centrally manage backup jobs and backup data for virtual and physical IT environments across sites. Catch up with the latest backup/restore job processing updates from automatic e-mail notifications, and assign the backup resources properly through the guidance of the visualization interface.

Improved Data Availability

You can setup a disaster recovery plan for mission-critical Linux and Windows servers using Offsite Backup Copy. Vinchin Backup & Recovery will send extra copies of the local backup data to a remote site, so that when disaster hits the local production environment, you can choose to either transfer the offsite copies back to the local backup server for on-site reconstruction, or directly restore the system at the remote site for fast business recovery.
