The complete solution to protect your virtual machines, with an unbeatable quality-price ratio.

One single license for unlimited hosts and virtual machines

Iperius Backup is a complete, affordable and easy to use backup software for Hyper-V / ESXi and vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi Free). It can perform hot backups of VMware virtual machines, copying them across the network, to NAS or Tape devices, in a fully automatic way.

Iperius is the only software that can do Incremental Replication of virtual machines on ESXI Free hosts (both as a source and as a destination).

Main features

  • Hot backup of ESXi, ESXi Free, vCenter
  • Hot backup of Hyper-V, also from a different machine
  • VM Replication from host to host and from datastore to datastore
  • Incremental replication also on ESXi Free
  • Compatible with vSphere ESXi Cluster
  • Incremental and differential ESXi backup (CBT/VDDK)
  • Backup to disk, network, Cloud, NAS and LTO Tape
  • Restore of ESXi and Hyper-V virtual machines also to different hosts
  • Restore of individual files
  • Totally agentless - Backup from the network
  • "Application Consistent" backups of Linux Virtual Machines with pre-freeze and post-thaw scripts
  • Incremental and differential backup (RCT) of Hyper-V.

Complete solution

Incremental / Differential Backup (CBT/VDDK)

Iperius fully supports VMware Changed Block Tracking (CBT/VDDK) technologies, therefore enabling the incremental and differential backup of ESXi virtual machines and only carried out on the space actually occupied on the disks. This allows users to speed up the process and make the backup procedures more granular, while also reducing the space required. It is compatible with both vCenter and ESXi Free (vSphere Hypervisor).

Iperius can automatically create "Application Consistent" backups even of Linux virtual machines, by quiescing the file system with pre-freeze and post-thaw scripts.

Backup of ESXi / Hyper-V virtual machines

Perpetual license and lowest price on the market

Stable, reliable and with a large number of features

You will be amazed of how such a stable and lightweight software can have so many options. With a single license, you can save unlimited virtual machines in your network and perform many other types of backups. Quick installation (30 MB only) and ease of setup. On all Windows systems.

Agentless: no agent to install

Two of the best features of Iperius are its great lightness and versatility. With a single installation, you can back up any Hyper-V or ESXi server in your network, without having to install any software agents. Backup is always quick, with multiple destinations and a very simple configuration.

Other key features:

Incremental replication of ESXi, even on ESXi Free hosts and without vCenter

Iperius Backup is the only software able to perform incremental replications of virtual machines also on ESXi Free hosts (both as source and as target). Iperius performs block-level incremental replication, performing a full replica the first time and then copying only the changes on the disks. Replication is fast, efficient and can take place between any host, without needing to have a vCenter. The replicated machine is immediately bootable in case of need.

"Application consistent" backup on Linux using pre-freeze / post-thaw scripts

Iperius Backup is able to create "application consistent" backups even of Linux virtual machines, thanks to the automatic execution of file system quiescing scripts (pre-freeze and post-thaw). Quiescing settings can be set individually for each virtual machine and are important for virtual servers that provide database or mail server services, which can have a high file system workload.

Backup of local/networked Hyper-V hosts

With only one license, and no need to install any software agents, Iperius can back up unlimited virtual machines from any local or network Hyper-V server. The backup runs quickly and without interruptions, thanks to VSS technology, and you can back up directly to NAS, Tape, or Cloud / FTP. Iperius also supports incremental image backup of virtual machines, with the possibility of truncating application logs.

Restore also on different hosts

Iperius provides powerful features for automatic restores of virtual machines, for ESXi/vCenter as well as Hyper-V. In a few easy steps you can restore a virtual machine, even on different hosts and from specific incremental or differential backups. Restores can also be used to replicate/clone virtual machines on hosts, datasets or different data centres.

Restore individual files from ESXi VM backups

Iperius includes a simple and powerful feature to recover single files or folders from the backup of a VMware ESXi virtual machine, without having to restore the entire machine. You can restore files from an incremental or differential backup, then on a specific date, or open a VMDK file to explore its contents and extract the desired files.

Restore individual files from Hyper-V VM backups

Iperius allows you to quickly and easily restore individual files from the backup of a Hyper-V virtual machine. Through a convenient interface it is possible to open VHD or VHDX files (which can be a backup of a VM or an Iperius drive image) and explore its contents, then extract single files or folders with a click.

VSphere ESXi Hypervisor Virtualization

VMware vSphere, commonly known as "ESXi" from the name of the underlying architecture, is a bare-metal hypervisor, which is installed on the physical server and allows you to manage multiple virtual machines. Iperius can connect to any ESXi server on the network, run the snapshot of the virtual machines and then make hot backups on different devices.

Hot backup of ESXi Free

Iperius can easily run snapshots and hot backups of virtual machines also hosted on ESXi Free. The cost of the virtualization environment and its protection is therefore reduced to only Iperius license, which is perpetual and allows backup of unlimited hosts and virtual machines.

Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines

Iperius can copy any locked or in-use file, thanks to the Volume Shadow Copy technology. It therefore allows the backup of virtual machines even on Microsoft Hyper-V, without any interruption. The Hyper-V virtualization technology is available on Windows Server 2012, 2008, Server 2016, Server 2019, Windows 10.
