STORServer Upgrades Virtual Machine Backup

VMB version 4.0 now supports VMware’s changed block tracking and enables direct copy to and from VMware and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager without a proxy copy.

Data backup solutions provider STORServer has announced general availability of its STORServer Virtual Machine Backup (VMB) version 4.0. The upgraded software now supports the use of VMware’s changed block tracking (CBT) and enables direct copy to and from VMware and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) without an intervening proxy copy.

STORServer VMB controls backups of VMware virtual environments through a graphical interface. The software uses the new VMware vStorage APIs to “eliminate the impact of backup on production servers by controlling the movement of data directly to and from disk storage into TSM storage pools without using agents or the VMware servers,” according to a press release submitted to Channel Pro-SMB.

Indeed, VMB eliminates the need to write scripts or manage TSM schedules and option files.

“VMB v4.0 eliminates the need for backup client software on individual virtual machines,” adds STORServer president Bill Smoldt. “The software is quick and easy to install, learn and use and takes just minutes a day to manage, making it an ideal solution for every mid-market IT manager and administrator who is backing up virtual environments.”

Additional enhancements to STORServer VMB v4.0 include:

  • An optional setting that enables non-quiesced snapshots.
  • More detailed client log messages.
  • Successful backups of virtual machines with hidden partitions.
