IDrive Online Backup Announces VMware Backup


LOS ANGELES, Jan. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — IDrive Online Backup, a leading cloud backup service, has launched VMware Backup, a cost efficient data protection solution for securing virtualization environments against disasters.

Traditional backup of virtualization machines can be costly, slow, and complicated. IDrive accelerates savings and backup times with incremental backups, simple restores, and disaster recovery for virtual machines. By backing up VM data incrementally, IDrive keeps the cost of storage and bandwidth usage down.

IDrive’s VMware Backup offers a host of features, including:

  • Backup unlimited virtual machines in VMware ESXi (5.5, 6.0), Vcenter
  • Incremental and scheduled backup
  • Zero downtime with hot backups of virtual machines
  • Use in conjunction with VMware vCenter

IDrive’s VMware backup protects virtual machines with military grade encryption 256-bit AES encryption, as the data is encrypted upon transfer and storage to ensure total security, along with an optional private key for another layer of protection.

“Virtualization allows you to run multiple different operating systems under one roof,” says Shane Bingham, Business Development Manager at IDrive. “If you experience a crash, the data loss can be massive. IDrive helps you secure all your virtual environments for less money. If a crash occurs, you can easily restore your OS and keep business operations running smoothly.”
