How can I backup Virtual machines on Hyper-V Server 2012 ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a few VM's running on Hyper-V Server 2012  free edition.   I would like to install a backup software on a server running 2008 r2 to manage backing up the VM's on Hyper-V Server 2012 .  I was thinking of purchasing Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Virtual Edition for Hyper-V.  Are there any other software options? and are there any free options?

  • You can also put into use free tool called VeeamZIP.

    In a nutshell, it’s zip utility for Virtual Machines. VeeamZIP is similar to full VM backup. Nevertheless, when you perform backup with VeeamZIP, there is no need to configure a backup job and schedule it; instead, the backup process for selected VMs can be started immediately. Minimum settings are required during this type of backup: backup destination, compression level and enabling or disabling guest quiescing.

    So, if you want to backup a VM, all you need to do is to select it, set required compression settings and VeeamZIP it.

    Kind regards, Leonardo.

  • Yes there are more options, such as BackupChain. The link above is more interesting for developers rather than users....
