NetVault Plug-in for Hyper-V 11.4 - User Guide

Introducing NetVault Backup Plug-in for Hyper-V

NetVault Backup Plug-in for Hyper-V: at a glance

The NetVault Backup Plug‑in for Hyper‑V (Plug‑in for Hyper‑V) uses a web-based user interface (WebUI) and automated workflow process to support a centralized way for configuring backup and restore policies for virtual environments. The plug-in offers a detailed level of control that minimizes downtime by letting you restore complete virtual machine (VM) images or individual files. Through integration with a range of backup devices, your data is protected and stored offsite to meet your disaster-recovery and business-continuity goals.

Key benefits

Increase confidence when deploying the plug-in: Plug‑in for Hyper‑V is flexible enough to account for many recovery scenarios. By relying on the plug-in to implement your backup policies, you can focus on more critical tasks without risking your ability to recover what is needed if a failure occurs. Plug‑in for Hyper‑V also empowers you to create a comprehensive and flexible backup policy and reduces the need for scripting, which may increase the risk of syntax or human errors.
Reduce risk with flexible backup and recovery options: Plug‑in for Hyper‑V equips administrators with a powerful set of tools to simplify backup and recovery of business-critical VMs. The Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS)-based backup provides a simple method to protect VMs including their applications. Full image-level backups protect the VM from failures while also providing flexibility to support test environments and disaster recoveries. Individual-file recovery offers faster restores and reduces storage utilization, server load, and the amount of data transferred over the network. Plug‑in for Hyper‑V offers the choice to restore a complete VM image or individual files.
Shorten backup windows and improve device usage: Plug‑in for Hyper‑V speeds VM image-level backups with high-performance Incremental Backups for data stored in VMs of Windows Server 2016. For Windows Server 2016 VMs, the plug-in uses Resilient Change Tracking (RCT). Use of RCT ensures that only the blocks that have changed since the initial Full or the last Incremental backup are sent to the current Incremental Backup stream.
Maximize information technology (IT) efficiency: Plug‑in for Hyper‑V reduces administrator involvement in the recovery process while delivering faster and more reliable recoveries. Less-experienced personnel can initiate restores, thus reducing downtime and improving business continuity and freeing administrators from being available 24x7. Less-experienced personnel can also perform routine administrative options, thus empowering administrators to create comprehensive backup policies with a reduced need to understand Plug‑in for Hyper‑V internals. The plug-in uses an automated workflow with point-and-click options for tasks such as defining backups and submitting job scheduling.
Ensure business continuity: With offsite backups being an important part of the data-protection plan for business-critical applications, the plug-in takes advantage of NetVault Backup’s integration with a range of backup devices. Plug‑in for Hyper‑V gives you the confidence that your virtualized environments are protected and stored offsite for disaster-recovery purposes.
