The Great VM Backup Bake off..

I started a new project off. I have authored a comparison paper comparing 5 somewhat similar VM Backup solutions. This is the beginning of an iterative project. I know I can test more products and perform more tests but these are the products that came to mind and the tests are relevant to how I want to use the VM backup solutions. I’d like to thank Anton Gostev from Veeam, Joseph Noonan from Unitrends, Sergei Serdyuk from Nakivo, Andrey Polevoy from Acronis and David Gugick from Dell for your support. I want to point out a few disclaimers:

  • Hopefully there is no biased in this document. They all have their pros/cons
  • It was highlighted that I should have gone with a different Acronis product which I will in the next iteration
  • In testing you may find different performance results than what I saw
  • The results were graded based on my opinion and experience. Do not take this for gospel, do your research
  • Pricing may differ when speaking to the vendor or partner vendor.
  • False statements and corrections will be corrected in the next iteration.

If you like the document and you want me to talk about my experience please reach out to me.

Zerto = Silver Sponsor

I’m pleased to announce Zerto as Silver sponsor.

Zerto is probably something we will look at work to address a requirement we have for our IaaS clients.

Zerto’s has a hypervisor-based replication solution which enables alignment of your Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery (BCDR) plan with your IT strategy. By using hypervisor-based data replication, you can reduce DR complexity and hardware costs and still protect your mission-critical virtualized applications.

For me its main value-add is the ability to replicate between vCloud Director and vCloud Director, something we struggle to do using the native VMware tools.

Zerto is software-only and hardware-agnostic – so you can replicate from any type of storage to any type of storage.

  • Leverage existing, underutilized storage as the replication target.
  • Leverage lower-cost storage at the replication site.

It basically automates a lot of the tasks required to provide full DR for VMware environments:

  • Select a VM in VMware vSphere vCenter and, with a few clicks, it is replicated and protected.
  • Zerto fully automates the entire failover and failback process, including creation of all the VMs, reconfiguring IP addresses and executing custom scripts.
  • Absolutely NO snapshots. Zerto uses continuous replication and does not utilize snapshots which can slow down your production environment.
  • With Zerto’s unique ‘Virtual Protection Group’ concept, you can protect an entire application spanning multiple VMs with a single policy and a single automated failover and failback process.
  • Zerto seamlessly supports VMware VMotion, DRS and HA, plus Storage VMotion and DRS. With Zerto, you are able to fully realize the benefits of VMware and ensure your data protection strategy is maintained exactly as you have specified.
  • Zerto’s software-automated installation does not require any changes to your storage or server infrastructure, making deployment simple and straightforward. The entire install process is completed in minutes.

Go check it out.
