What you get for XCP-ng with Vinchin Backup & Recovery


Seamless Data Protection

Vinchin Backup & Recovery provides a wide range of easy-to-use data protection features to secure both original data and backup data copies of your critical XCP-ng VMs without compromising high performance.


Data Availability Guarantee

Vinchin Backup & Recovery helps users to build the best 3-2-1 backup architecture to guarantee high availability of your XCP-ng VM data. By saving backup copies at on-site, offsite and cloud storages, there're always usable backup data for you to deploy effective VM/file recovery.


Improved TCO

Simplicity is a golden rule to Vinchin Backup & Recovery. You can get XCP-ng protection quickly started in minutes after simple installation, and manage massive jobs in one unified web console with minimal maintenance cost.

Key Features


Forever Incremental Backup

For more storage-saving XCP-ng backup, Vinchin Backup & Recovery offers forever incremental backup for users in need. It starts with an initial full backup and then only incrementals will be created. Backups in one forever incremental backup job will automatically synthesize into one full backup before VM recovery.


Instant 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 XCP-ng 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


Two powerful features to reduce backup size and free up backup storage. While deduplication works more detailed to detect duplicate data blocks especially the zeroed data blocks and store unique data blocks only, 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 provides Granular Restore feature to recover XCP-ng VM data accurately at file/folder level. The feature can not only quickly fix partial soft breakdown, but also recover mistakenly deleted files to the right place. It improves recovery speed when full VM restore is not necessary.



Another Vinchin unique technology designed to realize advanced data extract for more effective backup storage saving is BitDetector. Based on the working principle of excluding swap files, partition gap and unpartitioned space, it aims to only remain 100% valuable written data in backup servers, then more backup space can be further freed up for later use.


Archive to Cloud

Strictly following the best backup practice, 3-2-1 rule, Vinchin Backup & Recovery provides reliable access to multiple cloud storages including Alibaba Cloud, AWS S3, Azure Blob Storage and more for users to save another organized copy of XCP-ng VM backup for longer data retention use and effective disaster recovery.


Flexible Node Expansion

Use Vinchin backup server with backup node(s) expansion for backing up large-size XCP-ng clusters, adding full scalability of backup infrastructure for the future growth of your business yet 0 extra maintenance cost through centralized management of backup nodes.


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 XCP-ng VM back to local or offsite production environment if primary backups become unavailable.

Top Reasons to Choose Vinchin Backup & Recovery

Higher Backup Performance

Image-Based, Consistent Backup

Vinchin Backup & Recovery performs image-based, incremental and crash-consistent backup for XCP-ng environment, making sure your critical data on disk can be restored to the status as they were at the instant of crash. With hot application-consistent backup of MySQL, SQL Server and Oracle Database also available in the solution, you can combine them to get both non-database files and key database(s) in the XCP-ng VM well-protected at the same time.


Shorter VM Backup Windows

Besides traditional LAN-based data transport, Vinchin Backup & Recovery also supports users to back up XCP-ng virtual machines via configurable backup network or LAN-Free path, which relies on direct SAN (Storage Area Network) access without affecting production network. The two optional transmission strategies both work to boost VM backup speed and shorten backup windows, so that high volumes of data can be efficiently backed up 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 XCP-ng 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


Best 3-2-1 Backup Practice

It's not enough to have only one primary backup. To maximize data availability, Vinchin Backup & Recovery brings offsite backup copy and cloud archive features to build an ideal 3-2-1 backup architecture. Besides the original XCP-ng 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.

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.

One Backup, Multiple Recoveries

With Vinchin Backup & Recovery, you can fully utilize one backup in multiple VMware 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 you need to fix partial soft breakdown, recover data after primary site damage, or guarantee business continuity, there’s always one best solution to make sure the stability of your XCP-ng environment.

Enhanced Data Security

Backup Data Encryption

Vinchin Backup & Recovery will simultaneously encrypt your XCP-ng 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.


Ransomware-Proof Backup Storage

Besides encrypting backup data during the process of data transfer, Vinchin Backup & Recovery also prevents your critical XCP-ng backups in the backup repository from ransomware or other malware attacks. Based on real-time IO monitoring technology, any data modification request by unauthorized applications will be directly denied, so that you can have peace of mind knowing all your XCP-ng backups are given dual protection by Vinchin backup system.

Improved TCO

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.

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 VMware backup solutions from Vinchin, you can get a VM backup job immediately started in a much more business-friendly way with no more pre-agent deployment and maintenance cost needed.

Intuitive Management

You can simply control all the XCP-ng backup and restore jobs through a single pane of glass. With the unified web-based management console that Vinchin Backup & Recovery offers, any type of data protection you want can be found at the sidebar where features are clearly divided into different sections. 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 VMware protection, you'll be able to master the operations of the software in minutes without special training.
