PHD Virtual Backup 6.0 features faster backup and replication with optimized performance against any type of storage target, including cloud gateway devices. Customers gain the advantages of application aware backups and encrypted data protectionalong with functionality that helps demonstrate compliance with policies and regulations to pass internal and external security audits.
PHD Virtual Backup 6.0 also incorporates more savvy recovery methods that minimize downtime for even the smallest customers that cannot leverage replication.
“The new PHD Virtual Backup v6.0 release is top notch,” said Christian Schiff of Woodharbor Custom Cabinetry based in Mason City, Iowa. “I can recover a VM in about 3 minutes by running it from my backup storage. Combined with their new PHD Motion feature, I can move the recovered VM to my production storage 3 times faster than using VMware’s Storage vMotion.” He concluded, “They keep adding great features and somehow keep their product so easy to use.”
“Constant dialogue with our customers has inspired the improvements in PHD Virtual Backup so that it’s easier, faster, and more scalable than ever before for VMware vSphere and Citrix XenServer environments,” said Shawn Brady, Vice President of Sales. “With the release of PHD Virtual Backup 6.0 we continue to expand our value-added capabilities while keeping our prices very competitive.”
“vRanger was not able to keep up to our needs in our growing environment,” said Calvin Engen of F12 Networks in Edmonton, Alberta, CA. “After an exhaustive review of virtualization backup vendors, I selected PHD Virtual. Their deduplication is remarkable and saves me a ton on storage, and the new recovery features in v6.0 are so easy to use that I can delegate some of those tasks to others and focus on all the other important things going on in my environment.” He concluded, “PHD Virtual saves me time and money and helps me stay ahead of the pack.”
“This 6.0 release for PHD Virtual Backup 6.0 demonstrates why we are one of the fastest growing companies in our industry,” according to James Legg, CEO of PHD Virtual Technologies. “We are committed to meeting and exceeding our customer expectations in every way possible to earn their business with super productive, easy to use, affordable solutions.”
