Thinware vBackup®
Simple, Effective, Backup and Recovery for Virtual Infrastructure

Virtual infrastructure is complex enough as it is... why over complicate your backup solution?

Thinware vBackup is an enterprise grade backup solution for virtual infrastructure - minus the enterprise grade price. Thinware vBackup's easy to use interface and wizard guided setup make it easy to implement and manage in any size environment.

Reduce backup costs. Automate backup processes for an unlimited number of virtual machines using a single vBackup implementation.

Reduce down-time. Create full point-in-time backups without interruption to production systems.

Agent-free configuration. Perform agent-less backups of full virtual machines regardless of underlying operating system and without modification to systems being backed up.

Utilizes Off-host processing. Enables off-host backup of virtual machines accelerating backups and eliminating backup load from the ESX/ESXi host server.

What makes Thinware vBackup different from other virtual machine backup products?

Simplicity and cost. Thinware vBackup is purpose built to help you facilitate high-priority backup operations simply and effectively. And by avoiding rarely used, often non-essential, functionality and integrating with readily available (free) resources and utilities, Thinware vBackup is available at a price point that fits any budget.
