Reliable Data Protection for VMware Infrastructure

Zmanda’s VMware Vsphere client is a pioneer in data protection of virtual environments. It has set a high standard for comprehensive backup and recovery solutions. Zmanda Client for VMware vSphere and ESXi uses vStorage API to directly communicate with ESXi. Its core strength is in allowing you to protect an unlimited number of VMs on each of your hypervisors.

Simplified Deployments

VMware vSphere client is built into Zmanda Backup Appliance (ZBA). It's a pre-loaded VM, licensed and configured with Amanda Enterprise to help back up all virtual machines running on the same hypervisor as the appliance. Zmanda Backup Appliance is a cost-effective alternative, versus licensing for each virtual machine in the environment.


Block Level Differential Backups

Zmanda's VMware Client tracks the blocks that have changed since the last full backup. During a differential backup run, only changed blocks are backed up. This makes differential backups faster as well as reduces the amount of backup data transferred and stored. During recovery, a full backup image will automatically be combined with the relevant differential backup image.

Efficient Backup Storage

Optimizing backup runs matter across an enterprise of 1000s of machines. Thus in Zmanda, only those blocks that are being used by the VM are backed up. Zmanda’s VMware vSphere Client skips the unused raw space on the VMDKs, considerably reducing the size of backup images and improving the efficiency of backup runs.


Optimum Flexibility in Data Protection

Hybrid Cloud Architecture: Balancing backup runs across on-prem and cloud providers shouldn't be complex. Zmanda ensures all configurations are seamlessly managed from a single console.

No Proxy Servers Required: Your VMs will be backed up directly to the Amanda Backup Server, without needing another proxy server required in some solutions.

Our Strengths

Hot Backups of VMs
VM backups are done using snapshots ensuring no downtime for your applications.

Agentless Backup and Recovery
No software needs to be installed on ESXi or VMs. However, to help backup and recover specific directories and applications - Zmanda agents can be installed within a VM.

Complete Image-Level Backup
The whole VM is backed up to an image that is self-sufficient for restore. No need to re-install and re-configure the OS during the recovery process.

End-to-End restore
The VM can be fully recovered to the original ESXi server or even to a different ESXi server to aid in the disaster recovery process.

Selective Restore of VM Disks
Recover just the disks you need or even just the VM configuration. Flexibility baked in to aid in your Recovery Objectives.

Full Backup Management Features
Leverage all features of Amanda Enterprise with your VM backups: Compression, Encryption, Retention Policy Control, Monitoring, and Reporting.


Streamline Data Protection


Easy Installation

Easily install Zmanda VMware vSphere client as an add-on to Zmanda. No need for separate softwares. Just install the latest Zmanda VMware patch available in the Zmanda network.


Encryption & Compression

Encryption and compression of the backed up data is performed on the Amanda server. This process significantly saves the clients CPU & memory resources.


Scheduled Backups

You can schedule the backups of VMware servers using the Zmanda Management Console. The backups of the guest VM are performed by taking snapshots of the disks associated with the guest VMs.
