Modernized Data Protection for Open Virtual Machines, Containers & Cloud

Warsaw, Poland – June 20, 2019 — / — Storware vProtect is a backup and snapshot-management tool for VMs/containers running in open virtual environments and any application which allows to automate the backup process with scripts. With an easy management interface, you are able to quickly set up protection and store backups in several different backup providers. vProtect 3.8 was also the first release that introduced support for cloud platform – AWS EC2. Additionally, we added another cloud storage backup provider – Google Cloud Storage.

What’s new in update 1?

  • vProtect 3.8 Update 1 introduces 3rd backup strategy for RHV/oVirt 4.2+ environments. Using direct SSH transfer from hypervisors vProtect will be able to perform backups significantly faster. All of the features that currently vProtect supports for oVirt 4.2 are now also available for Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager.
  • Another big update is a technical preview of OpenStack support. Currently for environments with KVM VMs using QCOW2 disks. We also provided Horizon integration to allow more seamless integration.
  • For Oracle VM we introduced option to exclude drives. This version also updates our encryption mechanism for Azure and File System backup destinations to support large VM backups. Update 1 also provides minor UI improvements and fix for “snapshot ID not found in the DB” if full backup has not been done yet.
