Traditional backup applications don’t work in virtual server environments because they:
• consume too much CPU and memory resources,
• negatively impact network I/O by clogging the LAN,
• negatively affect disk I/O (which slows down virtual machine response times), and
• consume large amounts of disk capacity (which limits recoverability).

As a result, VM backups often fail, backups have to be staggered, backup windows are extended, VM density is limited, and users are often forced to shut down VMs in order to do backups. In short, backup can be the most limiting factor in a virtual server environment.

View this Webcast to learn how to:
• Achieve zero-impact (server/network/storage) VM backups
• Gain the advantages of backing up only changed blocks
• Save significant amounts of storage capacity
• Limit backup time and network traffic up to 95%
• And eliminate VM utilization spikes to increase performance

Join us on this webcast to learn how technology used in Syncsort BEX can dramatically reduce virtual machine backup time and impact, making backup fast, efficient and reliable.
