VirtualIron White Paper – Introduction to Backup and Recovery in a Virtual Iron Environment
This white paper discusses backup and recovery of virtual servers (VSs) in an environment utilizing server virtualization technology from Virtual Iron®. In this paper you will be given a high-level overview of Virtual Iron’s server virtualization technology and the methods that can be employed for data backup and recovery.
You might be asking yourself, “Why does this topic need to be covered in a white paper?” The reason for this is that virtualized servers, while behaving like physical servers from an application perspective, do have some unique characteristics when it comes to storage and backup and recovery. For that reason, the backup and recovery techniques that a business currently uses for their physical server environment may not be practical (or for that matter possible) in a virtualized environment. In addition, there may be more effective ways to perform backup and recovery in a virtualized environment. This white paper will identify these differences and describe the available backup and recovery techniques when Virtual Iron is used as the virtualization technology.
