InMage vContinuum Combines Backup, DR for VMs

InMage has optimized it software for data protection in virtual server environments. The company’s new vContinuum software combines backup, replication and disaster recovery in a unified workflow with additional features, including continuous data protection (CDP), automated thin provisioning, compression and “sparse retention.” InfoStor has the story.


“Citing the drawbacks associated with existing approaches to backing up virtual server environments, InMage today introduced vContinuum software, which combines backup, replication and disaster recovery (DR) functionality in a unified workflow.

“‘Traditional backup software is not optimized for VMware, and VMware-specific backup applications have tradeoffs,’ claims Rajeev Atluri, InMage’s CTO and senior vice president of engineering. ‘They either provide VMware-only data protection [excluding physical server backup], or they have different workflows for backup and replication.’

“In contrast, vContinuum unifies backup and replication under a single architecture. To protect both virtual and physical servers, users can upgrade to InMage’s flagship Scout software.

“vContinuum is also an alternative to using VMware’s Site Recovery Manager (SRM) for disaster recovery, but it doesn’t require homogeneous array-based replication.
vContinuum incorporates elements of Scout, but was designed from the ground up for VMware, according to Atluri.”
