NetJapan Releases vmGuardian Version 3.0
NetJapan, Inc., releases vmGuardian Version 3.0, a backup and disaster recovery software solution for VMware ESXi environments. vmGuardian brings high-performance and uncompromised protection to virtual environments. New features include an enhanced file format providing more efficient incremental backup file consolidation and faster offsite replication, a higher performing 64-bit virtual appliance, up to 10 percent improvement in performance and another NetJapan first, Branched Restore.

New Features

  • 64-bit appliance architecture improves backup speed and reduces overall system impact during backup and restore.
  • Incremental backup file type improves consolidation and offsite replication performance.
  • Incremental Consolidation Backup Management (ICBM) option automates incremental file consolidation.
  • Branched Restore provides the option to restore a virtual disk under a different name; creating a new branch at a specific point-in-time from the selected backup.
  • Up to 10 percent increase in performance from the previous version.

Standard Features

  • Agentless backup means no costly agent licenses per virtual machine.
  • Inline Data Deduplication Compression (IDDC) improves backup performance, minimizes storage usage and reduces overall cost of ownership by inspecting large volumes of data during backup and identifying large sections that are identical in order to store only one copy of the data. Virtual host backups gain significant benefit from IDDC because it allows nominally different data from each virtual machine to be coalesced into a single storage space.
  • Smart Sector technology improves backup performance and reduces storage requirements by backing up only used space.
  • Browser based management console provides easy to use wizards to guide user actions and simplify configuration.
  • Backup the entire host or selected virtual machines.
  • Host and virtual machines are backed up in a single pass.
  • Integrates with VMWare vCenter management console.
  • Smallest backup window in the industry.
  • Full and incremental backups.
  • Restore entire host, selected virtual machines, or individual files and folders.
  • Replicate backups offsite for added protection.
  • Flexible automated scheduling.
  • Virtual machines can be restored to the same or a different host.
  • vMotion and VMWare HA support.
  • Restore files to a ZIP archive.
  • E-Mail Notifications.
