Here at 24 Hour Data, we like to advocate three forms of data back-up to avoid the need for emergency data recovery. Now, new vStorage APIs for Data Protection http://www.vmware.com/products/vstorage-apis-for-data-protection/overvie... from VMware have made it even easier to back up your data from your VMware virtual machines running vSphere.
These new APIs let you perform full, differential and incremental image back-up and restore functions on virtual machines using Windows and Linux OS across multiple vSphere hosts or virtual machines without requiring separate agents in each environment.
vStorage APIs make back up faster, easier, and more cost-effective with a centralized backup solution. You can reduce your dependency on back up windows and run back-ups with virtually no downtime. You can even run back-ups while others are logged in and using applications on the virtual machines.
Virtual Machines Grow in Popularity in 2012
As virtual machines become even more popular to help companies reduce the physical size of their server farms and achieve faster processing and more storage at lower costs, it's important to know that you have support staff you can trust. Your IT staff knows the intricacies of virtualization, but they're not experts in data recovery.
When something goes wrong with your VMware virtual machine, we'd like you to think of 24 Hour Data as your IT team's best friend in a time of crisis. We'll recover your data promptly, whether it's been days, hours or minutes since your last back-up. And you can even save money by joining our partner program, which offers your IT staff discounts and referral commissions on every data recovery they send our way.
