Backup Appliance Product Specification
Made for IT Admins by IT Admins.
Multi-tenancy is unique to VMcom Backup solution. As a master administrator, you can see all backups of all existing tenants while tenant users can only see and manage specific parts of your inventory. This allows for unprecedented levels of self-service for virtual machine operators and saves valuable time of your core administrators.
Restore individual files
VMcom handles file-level restores from both Windows and Linux filesystems natively. Browse your backups in the same way you know from your computer. You can even download older versions of your files with zero disruption to your virtual machine. No indexing required. You'll find that incredibly fast and easy to use. Let VMcom handle the difficult part for you.
Create a new virtual machine from an existing backup while the original is still running. You can even restore to a different vCenter or ESXi host. Create a test environment for your application in a few clicks or check the integrity of your backups with zero disruption to your primary workload.
SELF-SERVICE BACKUP AND RECOVERY
To reduce IT workload, we have designed a backup solution with powerful multi-tenancy. VMcom Backup Appliance enables self-service: backup plan management, on-demand ad-hoc backups, file-level restore for both Windows and Linux, and VM level restore.
ADVANCED WEB-BASED INTERFACE
A modern web-based console for self-service backup and recovery included. This modern and touch-friendly user interface is available for all functionalities of VMcom Backup Appliance, including backup plan management, on-demand backup, file level restore and so on.
FAST AND CONSISTENT BACKUPS
VMcom Backup Appliance leverages the VMware changed block tracking (CBT) technology and snapshots. This approach allows for fast and differential backups, saving only blocks changed since the last backup.
SIMPLE TO ADMINISTER, EASY TO USE
VMcom Backup Appliance provides a solution for an unlimited number of tenants. Administrators are able to control tenants’ storage quotas and granular permission settings. With no agents to deploy in the guest operating system, you get both flexibility and reliability for backup and recovery of your VMs.
NO ADDITIONAL LICENSING REQUIRED
We have chosen a linux-based solution with a built-in database and tools. No third party components such as SQL servers are required. Thanks to automated usage reporting, dealing with licensing does not have to cause a headache anymore.
Deployment from OVF template is fast and easy and does not take more than 15 minutes. Building a proof-of-concept environment has never been easier. Protect your VMware with VMcom.
SUPERB VDP REPLACEMENT
VMcom Backup Appliance is a perfect replacement for VMware Data Protection which went to End-Of-Life stage in 2017. Same as VDP, VMcom is based on Linux, friendly to use and easy to deploy. Replacing VDP has never been easier.
Achieve outstanding levels of deduplication with VMcom's built in deduplication. It works at the datastore level rather than virtual machine level thus being more efficient than other solutions.
In order to boost your backup storage performance, simply add a small SSD drive to VMcom and use it as deduplication cache. It will boost your performance at a very little extra cost and turn any server into a physical backup appliance.
