Free Hyper-V Backup using Vembu VMBackup

Article Written by David Marshall

Microsoft Hyper-V is becoming a tough competitor for VMware vSphere ever since Microsoft unveiled Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 R2.  And Hyper-V has been constantly attracting a lot of users, many of whom are already benefitted by the new and improved function of Hyper-V server.  Setting up a Hyper-V server and creating virtual machines is really an easy and simple task, but creating a backup policy for the VMs running on Hyper-V is still complicated for many IT admins. 

Now that  your organization has created its own private cloud by way of Hyper-V, and you've migrated most or all of your physical servers to VMs -- and in many cases, you've even moved over your mission-critical servers -- how do you protect them and keep the organization operational when "stuff happens" and things go wrong?  What, if anytrhing, are you currently using to backup those VMs? 

If your business is currently looking for such a solution, but the budget isn't where you need it in order to get all the features you require, you should check out the new Vembu VMBackup FREE edition which might just surprise you.

Backing up to ‘the cloud’ means data is more easily available to authorities

Grazed from BDLive. Author: Jack Nicas.

While the increasing use of encryption helps smartphone users protect their data, another sometime-related technology, cloud computing, can undermine those protections. The reason: encryption can keep certain smartphone data outside the reach of law enforcement. But once the data is uploaded to companies’ computers connected to the internet — referred to as "the cloud" — it may be available to authorities with court orders.
