LinuxWorld vendor news:
Backup and recovery software vendor Asigra Inc. is targeting the increasingly virtualized data center with 64-bit agentless backup for virtual servers.
Announced on July 31st, 64-bit Televaulting for virtual servers offers N+1 grid-based architecture technology and allows system administrators to restore individual VMs without having to restart the entire physical server which could host serveral other otherwise unaffected virtual servers.
The pricing model offered by Asigra is very virtualization-friendly, based on the amount of data being protected and not on the number of virtual and/or phsyical servers. 64-bit Televaulting also boasts any-to-any restore capability, i.e. P2P, P2V, V2V or V2P, as well as hot backups.
Asigra’s virtual server backup solution also offers bare-metal recovery and backup of enterprise apps such as Exchange, SQL Server and Oracle, giving it good potential to be a part of an IT department’s disaster recovery plan. Also, when it comes to VMware, Asigra can be configured to back up only the VMDK file changes instead of the entire virtual machine every time a backup is performed.
