Key Features


Forever Incremental Backup

To better save backup storage, Vinchin Backup & Recovery supports forever incremental backup which begins with one initial full backup and creates incremental backups forever. You can either use CBT or CBT alternative, SpeedKit, a Vinchin unique technique for faster incremental RHV backups by quickly extracting changed data blocks.


Instant VM Recovery

In case system failure or unavoidable disaster hits your primary data center, you can still ensure the continuity of key business by recovering the target RHV VM up and run again in 15 seconds with Instant Restore feature. The restored VM on production host can be able to access backup data in the backup repository just like accessing its own local file system.


Deduplication & Compression

These are two powerful data reduction features that can’t be overlooked during the process of RHV backup regarding the significant storage-saving results they can bring. Deduplication works to detect duplicate data blocks especially the zeroed data blocks, and only back up unique 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 RHV data recovery at file level. You can choose to restore specific folders or files to the production host using Vinchin Granular Restore. It will help you quickly retrieve certain files you want without recovering the whole virtual machine. This helps you to quickly fix partial soft breakdown, as well as recover mistakenly deleted files.



BitDetector is another data reduction technology designed by Vinchin to perform more advanced RHV backup data extraction. It aims to search more subtly within the backup data to exclude swap files, partition gap and unpartitioned space, so that only valuable data will be kept in the backup repository, saving space further for newly written backup data.


Cloud Archive

For data that're important yet not so frequently used, you can easily archive them on cloud for long-term data retention using Vinchin Backup Archive. With near 10 cloud storages including AWS S3, AlibabaCloud and Azure Blob Storage supported, most of data archve needs can be met with Vinchin Backup & Recovery.


Engine Backup for RHV

With engine backup technology applied, Vinchin Backup & Recovery can not only protect a single VM but your whole Red Hat Virtualization platform. You can keep all the existing RHV VM configurations safe on-premises, offsite and on cloud, which is just as simple as any regular VM backup. In case your RHV environment crashes, it can still be quickly restored using the metadata backups.


Offsite Backup Copy

Since having one backup copy at remote site completes the 3-2-1 backup architecture, its importance has been placed. With Vinchin Backup & Recovery, you can easily build an offsite DR center by copying your critical backup data to another location. These copies can be used to restore RHV VM back to local or offsite production environment if primary backups become unavailable.

Top Reasons to Choose Vinchin Backup & Recovery

Powerful Backup Functionality


Image-Based, Consistent VM Backup

Vinchin Backup & Recovery is an efficient KVM backup solution that performs image-based and crash-consistent backup to protect standalone and cluster RHV server environments. In case any RHV VM crashes due to unexpected errors, all your critical data on disk can be restored to the status as they were at the instant of the crash using the backups. You can also combine this with application-consistent MySQL, SQL Server and Oracle Database backup feature to get both non-database files and key database(s) in RHV VMs well-protected at once.

Efficient Incremental Backup

As legacy incremental backups usually take lots of time for the traversal of the whole file system, Vinchin Backup & Recovery is able to speed up the process by fully utilizing ImageIO API + CBT technique (working on RHV 4.4) for quick data changed data blocks extraction, which requires no extra plugin on each VM. Vinchin SpeedKit (working on RHV 4.3 and older releases where there's no CBT available), a powerful CBT alternative feature can also be used to get the same results.

Shorter VM Backup Windows

Besides traditional LAN-based backup, Vinchin Backup & Recovery also supports users to back up RHV virtual machines via LAN-Free path for minimal network bandwidth consumption, which is achieved by direct access of SAN (Storage Area Network) including FC, iSCSI, and NFS. LAN-Free transmission strategy helps significantly boost the speed of backup data tranfer, and shorten backup windows because even high data volumes can be transferred to the backup repository even during business hours.

Backup Storage Savings

Vinchin Backup & Recovery applies multiple data reduction technologies to help you make the best use of valuable backup repository resources. Duplicated data blocks, swap files, partition gap and unpartitioned space across RHV backups will be automatically excluded once Deduplication and Vinchin BitDetector features are enabled. With deduplicated data blocks later being well compressed, the size of your backup data can be effectively reduced by at least 50%.


Data Availability Guarantee


Long-Term Data Retention

Long-term data retention has become an important part of modern business operations, and in some countries and regions, data retention policy has been standardized by the local government. With Vinchin Backup Archive, such requirements can be fully met. You can establish your own backup archive plans on daily, weekly or monthly basis for different information types, making sure all the infrequently-used yet important history data are safely kept in cloud archive storage.

Multiple Recovery Strategies

With Vinchin Backup & Recovery, you can fully utilize one backup in multiple RHV data recovery scenarios including automated full VM restore, instant VM restore and file-level granular restore. Given flexible restore options, you can make the best decision regarding the issue type of your virtual machine. No matter it’s the partial soft breakdown, business interruption, severe system damage by unavoidable disaster or ransomware attack, there’s always one solution that suits your need most.

Best 3-2-1 Backup Practice

Vinchin Backup & Recovery brings offsite backup copy and cloud archive features to build an ideal 3-2-1 backup architecture. Besides the original RHV VM backups at the primary site, you can also store extra backup copies at the remote site, and archived copies on clouds. This fades out the panic even if disaster strikes your primary data center, because there's always available backup data that're ready for effective disaster recovery.

Improved TCO

Intuitive Management

You can simply control all the RHV backup and restore jobs through a single pane of glass. Using the the unified web-based console that Vinchin Backup & Recovery offers, any type of data protection feature you want can be easily found at the sidebar. To get an automated backup, restore or archive job configuration done, a few simple clicks at the screen will be all it takes. Designed to reduce your time spent on RHV backup management, you'll be able to master the operations of the software in minutes without special training.


Manpower Savings

Vinchin Backup & Recovery adapts agentless virtualization backup technology to process VM backups with lighter computing resources. Traditional agent-based VM backup usually requires more on system resources and maintenance workloads to get satisfying backups. But by using RHV backup solutions from Vinchin, you can get a VM backup job immediately started in a much more convenient way with no more pre-agent deployment and maintenance cost needed.

Optimized IT Administration

Since IT administrators are often busy with different projects, Vinchin Backup & Recovery delivers a series of user-friendly monitor and notification functionalities to make you grab hold of system status most in time. Job alerts and notifications can be sent to you via email daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. The data visualization interface built in the web management console allows you to know the working status of each functionality partition in real-time through a large display screen.

Enhanced Data Security

Ransomware-Proof Backups

Considering the threats ransomware and other malware can bring to your IT infrastructure, Vinchin Backup & Recovery takes action to prevent your critical RHV backups in the backup repository from any possible malicious attack with backup storage protection technique. Based on real-time I/O monitoring, any data modification request by unauthorized applications will be directly denied, so that you can have peace of mind knowing all your RHV backups are given dual protection by Vinchin backup system.


Backup Data Encryption

Vinchin Backup & Recovery will simultaneously encrypt your RHV backups when they're transferred to the backup repository, so that hackers can't access any files even if they get to stole the backup data during data transfer process. Once data encryption feature is enabled, password verification will be required when you need to restore any of the encrypted backup data, which secures that the data will be used by the right user. The feature will be available when you configure local backups, backup copies, onsite/cloud archives and backup imports from detached storages.
