    Proper CBT implementation for reliabiltiy
    What good is a backup if you can’t restore the data!?
    Other vendors try to make sure your backups worked; PHD makes sure that your restore will be successful.
    We continually check backup data integrity and fix data corruption errors without user intervention so that backups restore as expected.
  • 42. SureRestore™ Technology
  • 43.
  • 44. Don't Affect Production VMs
    esXpress VBAs are VMs – use Resource Pools to limit Backup resource drain and keep Production Vms running smoothly
    Set CPU and Memory Shares to Low. This ensures VBAs get unused resources and Production VMs aren't affected
    There is no need to Reserve any Resources for VBAs. Leave Reservations set to 0.
    Don't set a limit on Memory or CPU. This allows VBAs to use all idle CPU and Memory for optimal backup times without sacrificing the environment
  • 45. Don't Affect Production VMs
    esXpress VBAs have advance controls for limiting I/O during backups SAN, Local Disks, and Network Drives won't be overtaxed
    Control Drive Read Speed in MB/Sec per VBA
    Set always on or by time of Day (Production Hours)
    Finally, a solution that can allow System Administrators to backup Production VMs during business hours without the fear of bringing mission critical systems to their knees
  • 46. Fault Tolerance – No Single Point of Failure
    • The Only fault tolerant virtual backup solution
    • 47. esXpress operates independently of Virtual Center
    • 48. In the event of a host failure, VMs that HA to a new host will be backed up
    • 49. Build Target Teams – Logical groups of storage for backup jobs ensure every backup succeeds even if one target is down
    • 50. Fully VMotion aware – backups continue even as VMs move from host to hose
    • 51. No Proxy Hardware to fail
  • vSphere Changed Block Tracking
    -Speeds backups by reducing I/O
    ESX 4.0
    In order to find changed blocks of data, backups read through the entire source VMDK looking for changes.
    vSphere vStorage API tracks changed blocks of data.
    esXpress reads only the blocks of data that have changed since the last backup. This reduces source I/O based bottlenecks and speeds up backups.
    vSphere vStorage API
  • 52. Increase Performance & Save Space
    Source Side Data is De-Duplicated and Compressed before leaving the ESX Host.
    Saves network resources with an average 25:1 compression.
    • Patent Pending Technology De-Duplicates all backups across the entire Backup Target
    • 53. No More Lengthy Refresh of Fulls – Every backup is a Virtual Full, but sends only changed blocks
    • 54. No More Lengthy Full/Delta Restores -Restore a VM in one step
    • 55. Saves Expensive I/O on backup target
    • 56. Perfect for backing up over the WAN
    25:1 Rate
  • 57. Meet your RTO/RPO objectives 4 times faster!
    • Up to 4 Concurrent Restores per ESX Host
    • 58. Restore data using the same VBAs that created the backup
    • 59. Keeps restores out of the Service Console
    • 60. One step restore to working VM
    • 61. Set Automatic Bulk Restores for easy Replication – Only changed blocks are copied after initial seeding
    • 62. Replicated data is ready to run
  • Advanced File-level Restore

  • 67. Integration with Traditional Backup Solutions
    esXpress Date Smart Dynamic Technology allows for intelligent selection of VMs for tape archival.
    De-Duplication Appliance “rehydrates” compressed backup data.
    Send data to tape backup system via a Windows share or natively with an agent installed directly on the esXpress De-Dupe Appliance for better performance.
    Data is sent to tape as VMware native VMX and VMDK files, allowing for one step restores from tape as data is not locked in a proprietary format.
