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.


LAN-Free Backup

Compared with legacy LAN-based backup, LAN-Free backup strategy from Vinchin can directly transferring backup data through SAN(FC, ISCSI, NFS storage network) without taking up production network resources. This greatly increases the efficiency of backup process and eliminates impact on your day-to-day business.


Powerful Data Reduction

Vinchin offers 3 advanced data reduction features which are deduplication, compression and BitDetector for effective backup storage savings. Deduplication and BitDetector work to detect duplicate data blocks, swap files, partition gaps and unpartitioned spaces to remain only 100% valuable written data in backup repository, 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.


Instant VM Recovery

In case any critical VM crashes, with the latest restore point you select, Vinchin backup system can automatically mount the backup data to the production host via NFS to realize instant business takeover, performing to meet the requirement of tighter RTOs.


Flexible Node(s) Expansion

For a relatively large Proxmox VE environment, you can expand your backup environment on demand to suit business growth by adding new backup nodes. In this way, your data can be backed up distributedly to multiple backup servers at the same time. Besides, easy and centralized nodes management can be still realized through one single web console without extra interface and extra cost.


File-level Recovery

Vinchin Backup & Recovery is capable of performing Proxmox VE data recovery at file level. You can choose to restore specific folders or files to the production host by using Vinchin granular search restore function from any restore point. It will help you quickly retrieve certain files you want without taking the time-consuming whole virtual machine recovery. This helps you to quickly fix partial soft breakdown, as well as recover mistakenly deleted files.
