Virtualization has changed data centers forever. Almost every organization has adopted server virtualization to some extent. Many organizations have adopted “Virtual-First” policies, i.e. any new servers will be provisioned as virtual machines (VMs) by default. If the requestor feels they require a dedicated physical server, they will need to make their case for why their application can’t run in a virtualization environment.
HubStor already offers Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) for on-premises VMs, whether they’re running on Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware vSphere. We’re very pleased to be able to offer policy-based backup and recovery, archiving, and tiering, all managed from a single unified console.
HubStor’s private preview of Azure VM backups
Since we offer full data protection to VMs running onsite, it’s time to turn our attention to VMs running in the cloud. While cloud computing providers generally offer their own backup solution, it’s often very high-priced. Backing up your cloud-based VMs with HubStor is often more cost-effective. Besides, we don’t believe you’re using a true backup solution unless you have at least one copy elsewhere and under your own control.
With that, we’re very happy to announce the opening of our private preview of HubStor backup for Azure VMs. We’re making early access to the solution open to a limited number of organizations. We’re looking to get your feedback and your suggestions on any additional features you’d like to see.
This private preview is open to anyone running VMs on Microsoft Azure. The only real disclaimer is that we will be offering some preference for existing customers and partners, and space in the program is limited.
If you’re interested in taking HubStor’s backup-as-a-service solution for Azure VMs on a test drive before its general availability, contact your HubStor account manager, or if you don’t have one, send an email to our sales team.
If you’re currently running VMs on Azure, we hope to see you in our private preview. If you aren’t, then you may be interested in some of our other backup solutions.
