Cortex I.T. Releases BackupAssist Add-On for Hyper-V Backup

New solution designed to simplify and automate data protection functions for Windows Hyper-V products, making Hyper-V more suitable for SMBs.

Cortex I.T. has launched a new BackupAssist Hyper-V solution that automates vital data protection functions for Windows Hyper-V products, simplifying processes and making Hyper-V more viable for SMBs.

“At BackupAssist, our mission is to create the easiest backups possible on any Windows system,” says Linus Chang, CEO of Cortex I.T. and lead developer of BackupAssist products. “You shouldn’t need a computer science degree to run a backup.”

Backups for Windows Hyper-V have proved to be complicated and frustrating because of the limited drive imaging facilities that Microsoft provided for performing backup and restore operations. The usual image backup consists of a single VHD file of the host and with no facilities to dig down into the VHD file, it’s almost impossible to retrieve files from the Guest VMs without running a second backup for each Guest VM individually.

“Most SMBs have three to five guest VMs on their host machine, but some have as many as 20 or more. Creating a comprehensive daily backup for all of them manually could take someone all night … and you can imagine how complicated it would be to perform restores,” says Linus. “Our new Hyper-V solution needed to be fast, simple, and very affordable. We achieved this by using ‘granular technology’ that makes it easy to dig down into a VHD file and quickly retrieve files from within.”

With BackupAssist, all you need is a single one-pass image backup of the host to be able to retrieve whatever file you need from any Guest VM. You don’t need a second backup of the Guest VMs. Setup is accomplished with wizards, built-in scheduling, and media rotations.

For the BackupAssist Hyper-V solution you’ll need BackupAssist v5.4 ($249) and the new BackupAssist VM Granular Restore Console Add-on ($249).†
