Respond to disasters, software issues, and server failures instantly by virtualizing the latest recovery points of the machines. You can create virtual instances of your backed-up machines on the BMR device and the cloud. You do not require any additional hardware or hypervisor as both the IDrive BMR device and IDrive cloud platform are built-in with the simple yet powerful KVM hypervisor. This makes BMR instant virtualization suitable for achieving high availability of machines and an effective Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution.

With RemotePC, you can now connect to your VMs faster by pre-installing RemotePC on your client machines.

Local Virtualization

Instant local virtualization allows a protected system to be virtualized and hosted on the IDrive BMR device

KVM hypervisor

Create virtual instances with KVM, a Type 1 hypervisor that provides a better virtualization platform and helps you resume business effortlessly during data loss / technical breakdown.

High availability of machines

Virtualize your machines within a few seconds. With IDrive BMR, your business can be up and running even during a technical breakdown; thereby helping you avoid downtime.

Optimized device

BMR device is configured with Intel Xeon series server-grade processor, latest DDR4 with ECC as memory modules and is equipped with a server-grade power supply that has high reliability. This configuration makes the BMR device an ideal device for virtualization.

Backup from virtual machine

Data backups are not affected, as you can continue backing up data from the virtualized machine. The latest backed up data will be available for restore when your system is up again.

Virtualize clients with minimum RTO

All the recovery points created during data backup are not interdependent on each other in the backup chain. Hence, if any previous recovery point is deleted or corrupted you still can create virtual machines with the latest available recovery points.

Real-time statistics

View detailed information on CPU, memory, disk and network utilization metrics of the virtualized instance. This helps you in configuring the virtual instance with optimal hardware parameters.

Data cloning

Recovery points used for virtualization are cloned instantly. Hence the original data remains unaffected as the cloned data is used for creating the VM.

Create and host virtual instances

Create up to 4 virtual instances — both on the device and on the cloud — taking into account the RAM configuration of your device and the memory available for cloud virtualization.

  • In the Local Virtualization section, select the required client, choose the recovery points for the given volumes, and the number of processors for the virtual machine. Enter the memory value in the Memory field

    Choose target location for the virtual instance

    Initiate a virtual instance either on the local BMR device or on the IDrive cloud, based on your requirements and the storage and memory configurations of your plan.

  • In the Local Virtualization section, select the required client, choose the recovery points for the given volumes, and the number of processors for the virtual machine. Enter the memory value in the Memory field

    Choose specifications to build the virtual machine

    Create the virtual machine by selecting the required client, recovery points for the given volumes, the number of processors for the virtual machine, and memory value.

  • Click Build Virtual Machine to successfully create the virtual machine. You can now connect to it and access data.

    Connect and access the created virtual machine

    Once you build a virtual machine you can click 'Connect' against the virtual machine and access and work on the restored data.
