The last couple of days I ran into some problems with restoring VM’s on Xenserver. I started looking for Hypervisor backup software for Xenserver. I took a deep dive into the wonderful world called the Internet and found Xackup from Fungusware. Alright, strange name but let’s take a look at the product itself.
I downloaded the software, requested a trial key and after 5 minutes I was ready to go! Installing the software was as easy as hitting next a couple of times and entering the license (trial key). No uploading appliances, no proxy IP addresses or something like that. Let’s take a look at the main interface :
I created a new backup job, look at the pictures below :
Select the VM you wish to backup:
Use a snapshot to create a backup or use NFS/CIFS volume directly :
Specify location, compression, differential etc :
Pre- and post jobs :
Schedule the backup job :
Send email on completion :
And here we go : 🙂
You can also use this program to migrate VM’s hot or cold to a new XenServer. Using the steps (source and destination XenServer).
The cost of this al :
85 AUD is approx 55 EUR. You can select as many Xenserver servers as you would like. No per Xenserver limit. 🙂
