VMware Backup

Backup all your data from virtual machines running on ESXi host and vCenter server to the BMR server securely and retrieve them during any data loss.

IDrive offers the most cost-effective, high-performing BMR functionality with onsite disk image backup

Store entire data of hard disks including the operating system (OS) and application configurations in an onsite server and retrieve them in case of catastrophic failure. In addition to local backup, IDrive offers cloud replication which allows you to transfer backups stored on your server to your cloud account for a better disaster recovery plan. Also, maintain a ready-to-use, bare metal restore (BMR) capability with each image-based backup. All this, now enhanced with CBT technology for high performance.**

Protect against ransomware!

Encryption-based ransomware is getting sophisticated and may not be detected by anti-malware software in time. Once infected, you will be locked out from your own data and there is still no guarantee you can retrieve your data even after paying the ransom! Take advantage of IDrive BMR's snapshot backup — a robust backup solution, allowing you to restore the copy of data prior to infection.

  • Why IDrive® BMR is better?
  • IDrive® BMR
  • Leading competing service

Better performance**

(30% faster incremental backup and cloud replication)

Hardware specification

(Best-in-class solution with enterprise-grade processor and server-grade hardware configuration)

(Limited)

Backup unlimited computers, ESXi hosts and vCenter servers

(No licensing per computer / VM backup)

(License-based plans allow you to backup only limited computers; each VM added for backup from VMware server is charged)

De-duplication

(Up to 30% higher storage efficiency with block-level de-duplication)

(Does not use deduplication for storage)

VMware backup

(Unrestricted backup of VMs, irrespective of OS, file system, and disk type)

(Doesn't support agentless backup for spanned volumes, ESXi shared volumes, ReFS file systems, and so on)

Virtualization platform

(BMR has an ability to upload OS recovery ISO, which can be used to boot up the VM and fix boot issues)

(Doesn't support upload of recovery ISO to resolve VM boot issues)

WinRE recovery

(Perform WinRE restore with a variety of tools, which are reliable and faster than linux-based restore)

(You can only perform Linux-based ISO restore)

Free cloud storage

(Free cloud storage space matching the device size; for instance, for a 6TB plan, you get 6TB of cloud space)

(Cloud storage starts at $150/TB/month)

Cost-effective

(Offers the best of all worlds in terms of hardware specification, cloud storage, and unlimited licenses at a competitive price)

(Costs higher for limited licenses, storage, and hardware)
