KineticCloud Backup for Servers Now Protects VMware ESXi Servers at the VM Host Level

The Beta version is available to channel partners at no additional cost.

Cloud backup and data recovery services provider KineticD announced this week that its KineticCloud Backup for Servers product has been enhanced to protect VMware ESXi servers at the VM host level, providing fast backups and restorations. It is now available in Beta for channel partners at no additional cost.

“As more and more SMBs move to the cloud, many are looking at virtualization as a way to combine resources and reduce the costs of IT infrastructure,” KineticD states in a press release submitted to ChannelPro-SMB.

The VMware ESXi server enables SMBs to run multiple operating systems and/or machines from one physical server, saving hardware, data center space, and resources. KineticD is a VMware Elite Partner. It aims to deliver a “cost-effective, smart, user-friendly way to safeguard virtualized machines, while providing greater flexibility and protection,” according to the press release.

Using Vmware’s Vstorage API coupled with KineticDs block level deduplication, KineticD speeds up VMware backups and only sends incremental data changes and transfers blocks that haven’t been stored in the vault. Doing so eliminates unnecessary data at the source and leads to much faster backups that consume less storage, bandwidth, and time.

Backups don’t require installing individual agents or plug-ins. Plus, the solution sports the ability to schedule backups during off-peak times or at specific times during the day, reducing load on servers and bandwidth. It provides full and differential backups, using VMware’s changed blocks tracking feature.†

“By integrating VMware into our product line, SMBs will be able to enjoy the same protection and assurance available to large enterprises,” says KineticD CEO Jamie Brenzel. “As the adoption of virtualization grows, it is imperative that we deliver the technology that enables our customers to keep pace with these changes”

By using the VMware Vstorage API, customers are able to back up data at the VM host level, simultaneously securing all or specific guest operating systems without causing downtime.
