QNAP Systems, Inc., a leading computing, networking and storage solution innovator, today officially released Hyper Data Protector, allowing users to back up unlimited VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V environments to a QNAP NAS.

“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.

With Hyper Data Protector users can choose to back up all the VMs on a Hypervisor or backup individual VMs. Hyper Data Protector features incremental backup, global deduplication, backup scheduling and recovery compression to greatly optimize backup/recovery times and storage requirements. For businesses with significant virtualized 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. If a VM on the production site goes down, 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 minimize RPO (Recovery Point Objective) and service downtime. Additionally, Hyper Data Protector supports VMware® vMotion that features Live Migration to ensure VM backup tasks keep running.

Supported Source Platforms:

  • VMware vSphere: 6.0, 6.5, 6.7
  • Microsoft Hyper-V: Windows Server Hyper-V 2016, Windows Server Hyper-V 2019

Hyper Data Protector can be downloaded from the QTS App Center. For more information and to view the full QNAP NAS lineup, please visit www.qnap.com.
