Enhance the performance of your Hyper-V backup solution


Rapid VM Recovery

Quickly spin up a Hyper-V guest on its backup destination to keep critical systems online during a recovery. This cuts downtime to just minutes and gives you the time you need to complete a full guest recovery.


Granular Restore

Restore data from within a specific guest using a backup of multiple guests, taken at the host-level.


Complete Support

For all Hyper-V environments and technologies, including Volume Shadow-copy Service (VSS), Microsoft Replica, and Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV).


Restore Mail Items

Restore individual mail items from within a specific guest running Exchange Server when you combine this add-on with Exchange Granular.


Easy, Affordable Licensing

Easy, affordable licensing means you’ll only need one Hyper-V Advanced license per host server – covering an unlimited amount of guests on that server.


Support for all Hyper-V OS

Support for all Hyper-V capable Operating Systems, including support for Windows Server 2012 R2, 2012, 2008 R2 and 2008.

Why choose this add on?

As your IT environments become more sophisticated, protecting virtualized servers will inevitably require more powerful, enhanced features.

That’s why we offer our users with more mature Hyper-V environments the additional features they need in the form of our Hyper-V Advanced add-on.

With Hyper-V Advanced, as your needs expand your backup solution will keep up. What’s more, the low-cost price of this modular Add-on means your budget stays in check. Because Hyper-V Advanced is licensed per host, you’ll only need one license to perform granular restores and rapid recoveries of your guests.

If you’re running a sophisticated Hyper-V environment, Hyper-V Advanced is for you.



One of the biggest advantages to Hyper-V Advanced is its ability to minimize your recovery downtime with Rapid VM Recovery. This is done by using an existing Hyper-V host to rapidly spin up a guest on its backup destination as a quick fix, keeping that critical system online and giving you the time you need to perform a full guest recovery.

You can even have a Hyper-V host spin up the guest backup from an entirely different Hyper-V host.

The result? Critical systems and data can be brought back online and made functional again within seconds.

Let’s say for example you lose a critical guest that’s running an SQL Server vital to your business continuity. Under normal circumstances, this important data would be offline and inaccessible while you perform a full recovery of the guest. That downtime could last many hours and be costly to your business.


With Rapid VM Recovery, you can spin up a backup of that guest in seconds. BackupAssist will run the guest directly off its backup destination, getting critical systems back online fast and giving you a temporary stop-gap to minimize downtime. That way, you can perform a full recovery at a time that won’t impact your business.

Any changes made to this guest will be tracked and stored within the host, and then once a full recovery has been performed, BackupAssist will merge these changes back into the newly recovered, live version of the guest.

No downtime. No data loss. No problem.

Granular restores

In a virtualized environment, your Hyper-V guests contain the bulk of the critical data your business depends upon. That’s why Hyper-V Advanced gives you Granular Restores – the ability to restore individual files, folders and applications from within any selected guest.

With Hyper-V Advanced, backups are still performed at the host-level, meaning you only need to pay for one license per host, regardless of how many guests that host contains. However, from that host level backup you will be able to dive down into each individual guest to select and restore unique data.

No more restoring an entire guest just to get to the file you need.

Not only that, Hyper-V Advanced can also be combined with Exchange Granular, allowing you to restore individual mailbox items like emails, contacts, calendar items and more from within an Exchange Server running as a Hyper-V guest.
