XenServer Backup

Citrix XenServer DR Backup and Replication is delivered with a Virtual Backup Appliance (VBA) designed to make the critical difference in providing Citrix backup software solutions that deliver the absolute best value in Virtual Backup and Replication.

Based on a 100% virtualised footprint, the VBA deploys and is managed directly from the XenServer hypervisor without requiring any physical servers or additional software.

In our experience the Virtual Backup and Replication is the only solution that enables you to quickly meet your organisation's performance requirements or fault tolerance needs with these key advantages:

  • Proven, reliable, ultra-fast performance
  • Effortless scalability
  • Built-in ease of use, no training required
  • Instant, flexible recovery
  • Most effective Citrix virtual backup at the least cost
  • Ultra-Fast Performance

Virtual Backup delivers reliable, ultra-fast backup performance like no other because we use multiple data streams for parallel processing of backups so backup jobs complete much faster – from 3 to 5 times faster – than competitive alternatives.


The VBA processes backup and restore jobs concurrently so you can meet your RPO and RTO requirements without interrupting your regular backups.
The built-in source-side de-duplication removes redundant backup data at the host for faster backups and to minimise potential network bottlenecks.
With two methods available for backup, Virtual Full and Full/Incremental, you can choose the right backup option to optimise performance for your IT environment.

Effortless scalability

Unlike other products that require a separate physical backup/ proxy server, PHD Virtual Backup scales seamlessly in a matter of minutes without requiring additional servers, operating systems, software, or agents. Our 100% Virtualised footprint allows you to deploy multiple VBAs to rapidly meet processing / performance needs for backup and recovery or to enable fault tolerance.

Built-in ease of use, no training required

The Virtual Backup plugs into your hypervisor management console instantly. Other products make you deploy and configure a separate server and operating system in addition to a separate management console. By integrating with your existing hypervisor console, we give you a single pane of glass to manage virtual machine backup and recovery using intuitive wizards with powerful scheduling capabilities that let you "set it and forget it."

Instant, flexible recovery

Our instant virtual machine recovery gets you back up and running in seconds. We give you multiple options to recover only the data you need in the shortest amount of time – recover a full virtual machine, a single virtual disk, a single file, a mailbox, or an application object – there's no need to deal with the complexity and cost of setting up additional physical or virtual infrastructure typically required by other products.

Most effective virtual backup at the least cost

With Virtual Backup VBA design you get the smallest backup footprint possible. There are no physical machines to worry about, no third-party OS licenses or additional software. Plus our de-duplication technology drastically reduces storage requirements, often by over 90 percent. Deploy cost effective DR in minutes, replicate critical VM's to a secondary site, and quickly fail over in case of a DR event.

All this adds up to your best value for virtual backup by far!
