The PHD Virtual VMware and Citrix Management Suites enable faster, easier and more affordable data protection and management of VMware vSphere and Citrix XenServer. The company also offers an Essentials Bundle, for customers running the VMware Essentials kit(s). Combining PHD Virtual's award winning backup and recovery technology with the comprehensive monitoring and management capabilities of PHD Virtual Monitor, virtualization administrators have all of the robust tools they need to effectively protect, monitor, and manage their virtual infrastructure.
Unlike other bundle offerings that combine "free-ware" products and utilities, PHD Virtual Management Suites include full feature versions of PHD Virtual Backup and PHD Virtual Monitor. "We wanted to offer our customers virtual backup and monitoring capabilities that offer the best combination of product features, ease of use and affordability – not just a collection of free tools and utilities that don't get the job done or offer immediate value," explained Steve Kahan, CMO, PHD Virtual.
The Management Suites and Essentials Bundle offer fully functional licenses of both PHD Virtual Backup and PHD Virtual Monitor, with direct integration into VMware vCenter and Citrix XenCenter. PHD Virtual Backup provides fast image based backup, granular recovery of VMs, files and application objects, virtual machine replication and is deployed as a virtual appliance, eliminating the need for proxy servers and agents.
PHD Virtual Monitor provides comprehensive monitoring, alerting and reporting from a single, centralized dashboard for the entire virtual and physical infrastructure. Customized alerts and reporting, along with the ability to capture long term performance history, provide a robust and cost effective solution for managing the entire virtual and physical infrastructure.
Victor McElwain with Realogic recommends the PHD Virtual bundles to his clients. "My clients look for value in any purchase they consider," he said. "When I approach them with a PHD Virtual bundle that enables them to get both backup and recovery plus performance monitoring for their virtual infrastructure, they see it as getting two products for the price of one. Add to that the products are easy to use, integrated at the hypervisor level and high performing, and you really have a winning combination."
