Backup Software for OVM

Hi there,

Does anyone at EE use Oracle Virtual Machine as Virtualization environment?

What backup software do you use?

I have seen that Acronis Backup and vProtect are 2 of the "not many" products that supports the hypervisor.
Any recommendations?

I do. I frequently have both Windows 10 and Windows 7 VM's running.

What backup software do you use?

Acronis True Image 2018 - but I don't run it inside the VM's .. I create incremental backups of the host system daily to an external USB and also Acronis Cloud backup storage.

I would like to suggest you VDI Recovery software that allows to recover backup of your Oracle Virtual Machine database.

Thanks guys,

But I was looking for an Enterprise-grade backup solution like Veeam Backup, Spectrum Protect, Commvault, since I have 4 hosts and around 40-45 VMs running.

Looks like Veeam Backup supports only the VMs via Backup Agents (as it doesn't support this hypervisor), Spectrum Protect supports it via a 3rd party product: vProtect, and Commvault it does support it directly. However the downside of Spectrum Protect and Commvault are its complex infrastructure setup and operations.

I rather prefer a product more on the lines of Veeam Backup, and Acronis Backup does look like a good solution.

But I will look into VDI Recovery, as it might actually come handy in some situations. Thanks Adom.
