Web Hosting Forum – LOS ANGELES — IDrive Online backup, a leader in cloud backup has now announced support for Hyper-V, giving users a single backup and recovery solution to protect virtual environments. As more organizations are turning towards virtualizing their physical environments to reduce cost, VM backup becomes critical for business continuity in the event of data loss.
In order to make backing up and securing Hyper-V VMs more convenient than ever before, IDrive has introduced the following features:
- A simple and easy-to-use interface which can be accessed via desktop or online
- Hot backups with MS VSS integration: Backup live Hyper-V VMs with zero downtime by utilizing Microsoft’s VSS Hyper-V Writer
- Instant restore of all servers in a virtual environment
- “We are excited to be entering the VM market as our customers have demanded Hyper-V backup,” said Raghu Kulkarni, CEO of IDrive. “This will help our users reduce the complexity of protecting virtual machines. Offering Hyper-V support is just another step for IDrive as we move up the enterprise stack.”
Hyper-V users who are concerned with security are reminded that IDrive offers military grade 256-bit AES encryption across all user accounts, along with an optional private key encryption, an additional level of protection which gives the user sole access to their data for no additional cost.
Unlike other Hyper-V solutions, that limit backup to a specific amount of computers, IDrive offers unlimited backup of computers and devices to a single IDrive account at no extra cost. IDrive’s Hyper-V backup is available now and can be tested out with a free lifetime 5GB account.
