QNAP Releases Hyper Data Protector, a License-free VMware and Hyper-V Backup Solution

QNAP® Systems, Inc., a leading computing, networking and storage solution innovator, officially released Hyper Data Protector, allowing users to back up unlimited VMware® and Microsoft Hyper-V environments to a QNAP NAS. Hyper Data Protector helps users with no license requirements create a cost-effective and reliable disaster recovery plan to ensure 24/7 service operations.

“Server downtime leads to more than just service interruptions and data loss, with some companies suffering a significant financial impact and potentially irreparable damage to their brand. By adopting QNAP’s license-free Hyper Data Protector VM backup solution, users only need one QNAP NAS to securely backup their VM environments. Coupled with snapshots and other protective features of QNAP NAS, users can build a high-performance VM backup and recovery plan within a maintainable budget,” said Wayne Hsiao, Product Manager of QNAP.

Users can choose to back up all the VMs on a Hypervisor or backup individual VMs with Hyper Data Protector. Hyper Data Protector features incremental backup, global deduplication, backup scheduling and recovery compression to greatly optimise backup/recovery times and storage requirements. For businesses with significant virtualised infrastructure, QNAP’s high-speed 10GbE, 5GbE and 2.5GbE NAS provide the ideal environment for running Hyper Data Protector.

Hyper Data Protector supports multiple version retention for up to 1024 versions. Users can quickly recover a point-of-time backed-up VM from the backup server to the production site (or to another operating host server) to minimie RPO (Recovery Point Objective) and service downtime If a VM on the production site goes down. Additionally, Hyper Data Protector supports VMware® vMotion that features Live Migration to ensure VM backup tasks keep running.
