NetJapan Releases vmGuardian Version 2

NetJapan introduces vmGuardian Version 2, a backup and disaster recovery software solution for VMware ESXi environments. vmGuardian brings high-performance and uncompromised protection to your virtual environments and now features support for vMotion, VMWare HA and ESXi 5.5.

An enhanced browser interface guides you through the various configuration settings, scheduling and backup management tasks simplifying the process to backup and restore your virtual machines. vmGuardian supports live backup of virtual machines and disks so there is no down time. Virtual host backups gain significant benefit from vmGuardian’s inline data deduplication compression because it allows redundant data from each virtual machine to be coalesced into a single storage space. The resultant backups are compressed at remarkably high ratios significantly reducing backup storage requirements.

vmGuardian Features


  • Agentless architecture means no more expensive agent licenses per virtual machine.
  • Backup all host virtual machines or only individual virtual machines.
  • Smart Sector technology improves backup performance and reduces storage requirements by only backing up allocated space.
  • Inline data deduplication compression inspects large volumes of data during the backup and identifies large sections that are identical, in order to store only one copy of the data.
  • Smallest backup window in the industry.
  • Performs full and incremental backups.


  • Restore all virtual machines, selected virtual machines or individual files, and folders.
  • Flexible scheduling.
  • Virtual machine backups are host independent; so virtual machines can be restored to the same or a different ESXi host.

Now Supports

  • vMotion and VMWare HA.
  • ESXi version 5.5.


  • ZipRestore feature (allows files to be restored to a local ZIP file from a selected image file.)
  • Incremental backup file consolidation.
  • E-Mail Notifications.
