Simple – Effective – Affordable

“We didn’t want to pay nearly $1000 to backup our XenServer VMs and now you don’t have to either. You can thank us later :)”

Virtual Machines can be restored from Windows accessible network locations or XenServer accessible locations such as CIFS/NFS and Storage Repositories.

Freedom to grow!

The top level version of Xackup wont limit the number of VMs or Servers you can connect to. Grow your data center without spending more on backup licenses.

Lowers tiers offer generous limits to meet your requirements and budget.

Migrate with minimal resources.

Direct Server to server migrations reduce storage and network resources and also the time required when migrating machines.


Simple mechanism.

SimpleMechaWe don’t use any propriety storage formats, backups are stored as compressed archives and we use standard XenServer methods to do all the work.

Xackup doesn’t require a dedicated server, management process, VM Agents or management VMs.
