Next milestone: delta mirroring to a second ESXi box with rsync.
New version 4.0.0 allows to mirror VMs to a second ESXi box.
Keep it simple, no agents, runs directly in the hypervisor, ESXi 5.1 & ESXi 5.5 compatible, hot backups....
XSIBackup copies your virtual machines to a defined backup device in ESXi Hypervisor. Report by e-mail at the en of the backup process, automatic provision of backup space for each virtual machine by deleting the older backups, has its own crontab constituting a fully unattended backup solution.
- Command line tool with real time output. Self contained, no dependencies, runs in the hypervisor.
- Hot backups, no downtime.
- Unattended backups of ESXi servers.
- Automatic provisioning of space by deleting the older folders.
- Detailed report of all the backup process per virtual machine (speed, shutdown, boot, space provisioning, times, etc...)
- Cron programmable.
- Detailed log
- Automated backup of VMware ESXi virtual machines
- Hot backups with no downtime
- Detailed e-mail report
- Automatic provisioning of space on the backup disk when full
- Cron programmable
This is a good concept and program Definitely only for those that understand the command line, it has a way to go for development, but it's exactly what we need to backup ESX with. Use with an eSata attached disk for external backup - excellent !
Very nice script
Fácil instalación y cumple con su cometido perfectamente. Una solución de backup gratis para poder hacer copias de ESXi en caliente y con programación.
This is awesome software! A++! Thank you so much for developing it.
