SDSL VMWare Backup

SDSL VMware backup and disaster recovery solution promises a quick, safe and easy protection for your entire VMware environment. Our VM Run Direct gives instant total Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and will get you up and running in minutes.

Spin-up VM instantly

If a backed up VM has failed or been deleted accidentally, our VM Run Direct feature allows you to keep the downtime to minutes, as you can run the VM directly from its local backed up file or directly from our UK Private Cloud without the need to restore the backed up image into the original VM host first.

Live VM migration with or without vMotion

With the VM Run Direct feature, you can choose to migrate the running backup VM to its original or alternatively, to a host machine with or without VMware vMotion license.

Point in time VM restore

Our VM Run Direct or full VM restore allow you to run or restore a VMs from any point in time that it has been backed up. The VM booted up or restored machine will appear on the VMware ESXi host you selected for restore.

Backup through vCentre or a standalone machine

SDSL VMware backup solution can be deployed in VMware environment with or without a vCentre server, therefore being highly flexible. Even if you have just one ESXi host without vCentre, you can still backup all guests.

VMware VDDK / CBT supported

Our solution supports the latest VMware's native VDDK and CBT(changed block tracking) technologies that enable fast incremental backup and recovery of your Guest VMs.

ESXi free version supported

Unlike other backup solutions which only support ESXi paid version, SDSL VMware backup solution has been extended to support ESXi free version. Although you can't use Granular Restore or fast VDDK mode with CBT for Run Direct , you can still make use of our non-VDDK mode to back up all your VMs.


The multi-threading implementation in SDSL VMware backup solution will utilise the computing power of multiple CPU cores for creating multiple backup and restore threads to give you super-fast VM backup and restore performance.

Multi-destination backup to local and cloud destinations

You can back up the VMware Guests to multiple destinations to minimise the risk of data loss, including local drive (of the vCentre or standalone machine), network share, and our UK private, replicated cloud storage sequentially or concurrently.

Flexible retention policy

Our solution allows you to set flexible retention policies, including daily, weekly, monthly and yearly policies to suit your IT audit and compliance requirements for keeping historical data.

Unhackable 256-bit truly randomised encryption key

Before backing data up to our private UK cloud, data security can be ensured by enabling 256-bit encryption so that the backup agent will encrypt the backup data locally before sending securely to our UK Cloud. The 256-bit encryption key is impossible to hack even by brute force attack using a supercomputer.
