BackupAssist gives you a flexible range of options to ensure customized protection for Hyper-V environments. You can back up your hypervisors and virtual machines using Imaging backups, replication backups or archiving backups.
You can also choose from a wide selection of backup destinations and schedule types, allowing you to tailor your protection to the needs of your environment.
Our System Protection imaging backup offers the most features for Hyper-V backup, with Customized Hyper-V destination, CSV and Exchange Server detection steps, and support for block level backups, incremental image backups and Data containers. Not only that, it also facilitates easy recovery of both guests and hosts.
Hyper-V backup with BackupAssist gets even better using our Hyper-V Granular Restore Add-on.
This will allow you to use a single System Protection image backup to restore individual items or data from within any Hyper-V guest running!
Not only that, the Hyper-V Granular Restore Add-on can also be combined with our Exchange Granular Restore Add-on to restore individual mail items from an Exchange Server that is running on a VM.
Hyper-V and virtualization technologies are in constant evolution. As a Microsoft Gold Application Developer, you can rest assured that BackupAssist will always be evolving with Hyper-V! We strive to ensure that our Hyper-V backup solutions take advantage of advances in current and future Hyper-V technologies.
The latest Windows Server 2012 and 2012R2 Hyper-V technologies supported by BackupAssist include:
Other backup, restore and recovery solutions for virtualized environments require significant investment in agents and add-ons. But BackupAssist provides a truly cost effective solution out of the box. We offer support for backups of Hyper-V guests or the entire host, and the ability to restore a full guest, or data from inside of the host.
If all you need is the ability to back up Hyper-V hosts and guests, restore data from within a host or restore entire guests, then all you need is our low-cost base license!
Want to be able to perform a granular restore of data from data inside of a guest using a standard backup? Well, BackupAssist gives you the option of purchasing our Hyper-V Granular Restore Add-on. This Add-on unlocks the Hyper-V Restore console so you can do more with the backups that you have. Best of all, the Hyper-V Granular Restore Add-on is licensed at the host level, so you only need one license for multiple guests.
After first several weeks of testing your software, I can say that being in this business since late 80's, I never run into backup tool giving so many options, way above average performance and at the same time staying wonderfully transparent and user friendly! It has been all pleasure working with BackupAssist.

All our clients want is a simple backup strategy that's secure, easy to follow and implement, and BackupAssist provides just that. It's an excellent product, and I do like the emailed logs as it allows me to remotely check progress.
John Dance, Managing director, Rebooted Pty Ltd, Australia
The greatest strength is without doubt the easiness of implementing a working backup schedule. Combined with the email capability it provides everything I need for our business' backups at a very competitive price level!
Johan Sandqvist, AB Gyllenhammar & Sahlin, Sweden
Have used [competitors' products] - too expensive, complicated architecture for majority of servers we use. Advantages of BackupAssist are simplicity. Cost. Ease of use. Easiest I have used so far - [competitors' products] etc. Complete novice could use this software. Full marks for ease of use / clear explanations.
Kieran Murphy, Powerscreen International Ltd, N. Ireland
It's very easy to use. Other solutions were too expensive with almost same capabilities.
Gerardo Arlotto, Jefe de Sistemas Compania Uruguaya de Cemento Portland, Uruguay
We needed a low-cost backup solution for one of our servers... BackupAssist has an advantage over expensive software solutions because it's simple, cost-effective and gets the job done without creating a complicated mess like some of the expensive packages do.
Jim Ficarra, Cross Current Corporation, USA
BackupAssist's greatest strength is its automation. We needed a solution where the person at the remote site has NO admin rights, just needs to change the tape - nothing else!
Aaron, Direct Wines, UK
Found it to be the most cost effective solution to backing up our two Windows servers.
Bruce Segal, Decarie Motors, Canada
We tried lots of software. Among those evaluated were [major competitors' products]. All of the packages except yours operated inconsistently (or not at all), several would not read backup tapes it created an verified, some could not access hardware or access was inconsistent, some caused system lockups or blue screen crashes... all of the above packages ranged in price from $900 USD to > $3,000 USD.
Mr. Charles D. Amata Jr., CPTechnologies Inc., USA
We needed to backup Exchange and SQL Server but didn't want to spend a fortune.
Gary Baldwin, Davison C E High School, UK
I purchased BackupAssist because I was tired of pulling my hair out with [a competitor's] over priced and overly complex software. BackupAssist was the third or fourth demo I downloaded via Google. Ease of use. BackupAssist provided me with all the features I needed with a very easy to use setup/configuration interface. Good job with BackupAssist. Other backup software companies should take follow your lead.
Jeff Lowe, Network Administrator, Indigenous Gaming Regulators Inc., Canada
Another Computer consultant evaluated, purchased and recommended this software. Since then, we are so impressed, that as far as I'm concerned any of our new servers will have a license of BackupAssist to make the media management simple.
Scott Young, Network Integration Solutions Inc., Canada
Thank you for your product; I am very pleased with my decision to purchase this software. Coming from a non-profit background, it was very affordable compared to other products on the market.
