    Paragon Software Group proudly announces the new product, Hard Disk Manager 14 Hyper-V Preview!

    Paragon Hard Disk Manager 14 Hyper-V Preview is designed to protect virtual machines hosted by Microsoft Hyper-V. Unlike traditional backup tools designed to work with physical machines, it can operate at the virtualization layer, employing MS VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) to agentlessly backup/restore any guest machine of Hyper-V. Thus our solution doesn’t need an agent on a target virtual machine to create its point-in-time copy including its configuration, operating system, apps, etc. This approach significantly enhances the backup performance, while minimizing the load on target machines and the hypervisor during the process. Besides, there’s no need to provide credentials for every guest to do backups.

    Feature highlights:
    • Supports Windows 2012 R2
    • Installation takes only 5 minutes on Hyper-V host
    • Supports SMB 3.0 hosted virtual machines
    • Restore to a new location
    • Wide choice of backup formats - VHDX, VHD, pVHD or VMDK
    • Incremental Hyper-V backup coming soon!
