Virtual Machine Backup

Virtual machines are used frequently, critical information stored in their disk files constantly changes. As with physical machines, virtual machine data needs to be backed up periodically to prevent its corruption and loss due to human or technical errors. The virtual machine data you back up includes virtual disks, Raw Device Mappings (RDM), configuration files, and so on. When you perform a backup, the following three components of backup software are generally involved in the process that is backup client, backup server and scheduler. VM is not locally hosted on the computer itself; instead, all the data and files used within the VM are accessed over a network like the internet. This model allows businesses to replicate or backup entire VMs at a time. VM Backup is designed to give you the reliability and performance you need, without hassle or complexity, so you can deliver value to your organization immediately and consistently.
