Zmanda: Virtual Machine Backup Regardless Of Location Or Migration
Zmanda, a Sunnyvale, Calif. developer of open source backup and cloud backup software, is demonstrating its next generation VMware backup software. This release adds support for the VMware vCenter Server so that a user can specify which virtual machine they want to back up and point the backup server to the vCenter Server without worrying about which specific vSphere or ESX host the virtual machine is running on. Once scheduled, the backup will run uninterrupted even if the specified virtual machine is moved by VMware VMotion or VMware High Availability. The virtual machine can be recovered to the original location or on any specified hypervisor.
