PHD Virtual Backs Up and Protects vHost UK Client Data

PHD Virtual Technologies, a pioneer in virtual backup, infrastructure monitoring and innovator of disaster recovery assurance solutions, announced today that vHost UK (, a managed services provider (MSP) of backup and monitoring for nearly 400 VMs, has selected PHD Virtual solutions for client backup and monitoring.

vHost UK utilizes vCloud and vApps for their client base and has implemented PHD Virtual Backup 6.2. PHD Virtual is the first and only solution on the market to offer powerful local VM backup capabilities and provide a link to public or private cloud storage for offsite backups, delivering the most powerful, feature-filled, easy-to-use backup solution for virtual servers at a fraction of the cost of competitive alternatives.

The PHD Virtual appliance can handle multiple concurrent backup threads shrinking vHost UK’s backup window by hours. With this feature, vHost UK can now easily backup all systems nightly for hundreds of customers, which was a hassle in the past.

“As compared to leading competitive solutions we investigated, PHD offered us the best solution at the most cost-effective price,” said Neil Duncan, Managing Partner, vHost UK. “In addition, I really like how dedupe is done per datastore and PHD gives us great 10:1 ratios on systems that are changing frequently, such as databases. And, the dedupe ratios are even better on Windows servers, which all get deployed from a standard template.”

“We continue our momentum in the provider market with the addition of new functionality like CloudHook. However, it still goes to show that in this space it is important to be easy, fast, efficient and priced affordably,” said Joe Noonan, Senior Product Manager, PHD Virtual. “The concurrent processing, global dedupe, and forever incremental benefits you get with our 'virtual full' backup mode are core to how we’ve been processing data for years and with the onset of many new features, such as CloudHook and our upcoming backup archiving capability, we are happy to see that our core architecture is still a great driver of value for our customers.”
