Key Features


Forever Incremental Backup

A backup strategy performs full backup only once and incremental backups forever. You can also fully utilize CBT technology for it to quickly identify the data block changes of VM disk during the backup process, which profoundly drives VM backup efficiency to reach a higher level, the optimum way to ensure data consistency with least time and backup storage cost.


Instant Recovery

In case system failure or unavoidable disaster hits your VMs on primary data center, you can still ensure the continuity of key business by recovering the target XenServer VMs up and run again in 15 seconds with Instant Restore feature. The restored VMs 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 XenServer 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 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.


Flexible Node Expansion

For a relatively large XenServer 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, and easy and centralized nodes management can be still realized through the single web console without extra interface and extra cost.



BitDetector is an advanced data reduction technology uniquely designed by Vinchin to further reduce the backup size of XenServer VMs. It works to exclude swap files, partition gap and unpartitioned space in order to only remain 100% valuable data in the backup servers. So that the valuable data ratio in your XenServer backups can be significantly improved with less backup storage being taken.


File-level Recovery

Vinchin Backup & Recovery provides granular restore feature to search and recover target files or specific folders instead of the entire XenServer VM, fixing partial soft breakdown on point, and helps to find target files back by recovering XenServer VM to any restore point before mistaken deletion. Being full independent, no impact will be made on the scheduled full XenServer backups if you boot granular restore when critical files are urgently needed.


Archive to Cloud

Strictly following the best 3-2-1 backup rule, Vinchin Backup & Recovery calls the API of Alibaba Cloud, AWS S3, Wasabi and more other mainstream cloud storages for users to save another organized copy of XenServer backup for long-term data retention. Furthermore, having backup copies on cloud allows you to deploy effective XenServer disaster recovery by transferring data back to the local or offsite backup storage.


Offsite Backup Copy

For business, it’s essential to have multiple XenServer backup copies in both primary and remote sites for disaster recovery purposes. With Vinchin Backup & Recovery, you can also easily build an offsite disaster recovery (DR) center by duplicating XenServer backups at the primary site to a remote site or external storage, fully prepared for the worst situation when both local production and backup environment are damaged.
