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

Quest® 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 and Differential Backups for data stored in VMs of Windows Server 2016 and later. For Windows Server 2016 and later VMs, the plug-in uses Resilient Change Tracking (RCT). RCT tracks changes to a Virtual Hard Disk (VHD or VHDX) that occur between backups.
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.
