Data management software developer Archiware has released version 3.0 of Pure VMware Backup. Pure is designed to simplify backup and restore of virtual machines in the VMware vSphere environment.
Installation and setup can be performed within minutes, without the need for in-depth technical expertise.
A key feature of version 3.0 is the support of cloud-based object storage services, such as Amazon S3, Backblaze B2, Microsoft Azure and others. Backups of virtual machines can now be cloned to the cloud to increase data security.
The new Quick Verification feature reduces verification time for sparsely provisioned virtual disks with unallocated areas. Upon enabling the Quick Verification option, Archiware Pure queries the ESXi host for a list of allocated disk blocks and skips unallocated empty areas.
Finally, improved File Restore enables instant download of an entire folder as a .zip archive. This allows quick browsing of past backup points, as if they are folders on a workstation. Once a file is located, it can be downloaded with a simple mouse click.
Archiware Pure version 3.0 is now available as an upgrade or free, fully featured version.
