VMhosts SAN Snapshot Backup
All virtual machines hosted on our VMware vSphere Public Cloud are protected by our free SAN based Snapshot backup service. We take a snapshot every evening with a retention of 7 days. There is no extra charge all VM’s of any size are protected.
Our Free backup solution provides the ability to perform full system recoveries covered by a P3 SLA (4 business hours).
If you need to roll back your system to the previous night or any other point within the retention period simply open a support ticket and action your request.
Please be aware our SAN Snapshot Backup does not provide the ability to recover individual Guest Operating System files or specific Application data. The backups are also dependant on the local storage array and does not provide any offsite protection or retention.
