HOTBackup Hypervisor-aware backups of your virtual machines

HOTBackup protects virtually everything while also providing fast, secure, and reliable backup of your VMware and Hyper-V environment with cloud-based backup and recovery of hosts, images and data.  By using the cloud, HOTBackup ensures you can easily recover virtual machines without relying on expensive, failure-prone, on-premise hardware, delivering a successful recovery every time.

Backup Features


Native VMware Integration


Support for VMware vSphere ESXi versions from 4.0 upwards, utilising VMware’s ‘Change Block Tracking’ (CBT) to provide complete backup coverage of your virtual environment.


Native Hyper-V Integration


HOTBackup fully integrates with Hyper-V.


Hot Virtual Machine Backups


Make ‘hot’ backups of already running virtual machines for up to the minute protection of your data and virtual devices.


Granular Data Protection


Easily recover an entire virtual machine, the host server, and even a single file within a virtual machine.  HOTBackup can also truncate your Exchange and SQL transaction log files, ensuring on-going housekeeping is automatically maintained.




HOTBackup uses True Delta technology to identify changed data, giving you the fastest and smallest backup possible, ensuring the whole virtual machine doesn’t need to be backed up every time.


WAN Optimisation


Backups are optimised using de-duplication and compression prior to transmission, with bandwidth throttling and automatic reconnection – ensuring even the largest virtual machine image changes are quickly backed up to our cloud storage repository.


Hybrid-Cloud Backups


Backups are saved to our cloud storage repository and optionally, to local storage (what we call the local speed vault).  The result?  Instant backup redundancy.


Centralised Monitoring and Reporting


Your backups are all centrally managed and monitored from our web-based console, and can alert to the state of your backups, storage use, data backed up, and the success/failure of each job.

Recovery Features


Centralised Recovery Management


Manage the backup and recovery of both your VMware, Hyper-V and physical servers and workstations from a single console.


Hybrid Recovery


You can always recover, even without access to the Internet, via synchronised backups in our cloud and on your local storage.


Fastest Recovery Possible


Our HOTBackup automatically selects the source (either local or cloud storage) that will provide the quickest recovery.


Virtual Drive Access


When you only need to recover a few files out of a virutal machine, Virtual Drive functionality allows you to navigate through a backup just like your local computer – doing away with the need to restore an entire virtual machine image.


Direct VM Recovery


Because virtual machine system configurations are preserved during backup, all volume and system configuration data accompanies restores, making recovery to an existing or alternate virtual machine host a simple task.


Virtual Disaster Recovery


In the event your physical servers are unavailable or not functioning, you can easily recover a physical server as a VMware or Hyper-V image.


Disaster Recovery Testing


Take advantage of our virtual environment by testing the automated recovery of your physical servers to virtual machine images, saving time and without interrupting production.
