With the Unitrends system, you can create a customized backup schedule (or set of schedules) to protect your virtual machines. For example, let’s look at an environment that has multiple Hyper-V VMs of various sizes, and with each running different applications, so their change rate varies. You may decide to use one of several schedule strategies, for example weekly full backups with incremental backups between the full backups, or perhaps a strategy known as “Incremental Forever”, in which you run one full backup and incremental backups to capture just the changes thereafter. You can put all of your VMs in one backup schedule, or you can group the VMs so that some are backed up in using one schedule strategy, and the others are backed up using a different schedule, and so on. In this way, you can customize the frequency of backups based on your environmental needs.
To increase your number of recovery points, you run backups more frequently in one of your schedules. Alternatively, you may decide that for a VM that changes less frequently, daily or even weekly backups may be all that is required. Less frequent backups mean that you have fewer recovery points, but less resources are required to manage VSS snapshots, transmit backup data to the Unitrends system, etc.
