Key Benefits

Improve overall IT operation experience from multiple dimensions

Higher Scalability

Vinchin Backup & Recovery matches the existing and growing virtualization demands of the entire IT infrastructure and combines them well. Supported by the integration of 15+ virtual platforms, whether you want to remove an existing virtual platform and migrate data to a new one, or just in need of switching services across multiple virtual platforms, you can both rely on the V2V solution from Vinchin to easily reach your goals, even if you run multi-hypervisors in the data center.

Improved Data Availability

Vinchin Backup & Recovery helps enterprise users who deploy a hybrid cloud environment in the primary data center to improve data availability. When the data of a certain virtual machine is unavailable due to a disaster, you can still seamlessly restore the initial VM backups to a new virtual platform using on-premises backups, offsite backup copies or archived data on cloud, and use the recovered data at the new location just like you're accessing the original VM.

Simplified Management

In the past, the data management for V2V migration across different virtual platforms may be difficult due to a single software’s lack of high compatibility. But Vinchin Backup & Recovery can help change this situation by offering a centralized web console that works with backup data from diverse virtual platforms. Without being a cybersecurity expert, you're capable of controlling the protection of complex virtual environments in a super-easy way.

Shorter RTOs

Using Vinchin Backup & Recovery, set up a business continuity plan within a multi-hypervisor environment can be as simple as that within a regular one. Designed for enterprises who need to deliver service 24/7, Instant Restore helps to improve service stability by starting up an interrupted VM within 1 minute to reduce RTOs of your most critical IT workloads. Instant Restore in the software is also applicable in V2V scenarios, with very simple configurations required.
